GEN – 909.00. On a monthly basis, the Eurovent Team compiles a global overview of the latest developments concerning new standardisation activities and technical regulations of relevance for the HVACR industry. Our Notifications allow members to be prepare for developments that can have an impact on them and their products.

Standardisation

The application of the 2015/1535/EU (previously Directive98/34/EC Directive) has also been extended to new standardisation work undertaken by National Standard Bodies (AENOR, AFNOR, DIN, UNI, …) at national level. These notifications are registered centrally by the CEN Management Centre. A ‘Monthly Notifications Register’ is circulated in English to CEN Members and the European Commission. The National Standard Body generally provides the relevant associations with a copy of these updates.

The April 2018 ‘Monthly Notifications Register’ included the following issues of relevance:

Technical Regulations

The 2015/1535/EU Directive compels the Member States to notify to the Commission and to each other all the draft technical regulations concerning products. The aim of this procedure is to avoid creation of unjustified barriers between Member States. These regulations may be found under: http://ec.europa.eu/growth/tools-databases/tris/en/

Member States have three months to introduce comments or detailed opinions. Detailed opinions extend the status quo period by three months and oblige the issuing member state to argue on their legislation.
