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 3 months to introduce comments or detailed opinions. Detailed opinions extend the status quo period with 3 months and oblige the issuing member state to argue or their legislation.

Enterprises can send their comments on regulatory proposals of non-EU countries either directly to the EU TBT Enquiry Point (DG GROW B2, tel +32 2 295 63 96, + 32 2 299 80 43, email GROW-EU-TBT@ec.europa.eu) or via the Enquiry points of Member States of the EU. The addresses and emails can be found here under “Contact“.

The EU TBT Enquiry Point should receive comments no later than three weeks before the final deadline set by the notifying WTO member in the notification form!  This is difficult to achieve because few companies monitor these notifications. Within Eurovent an effort is made to provide monthly updates, this than often results in a very short time (about a week) to respond as an association.

Companies are recommended to comment directly to the EU TBT Enquiry Point, in advance of a Eurovent comment to make sure the deadlines are met.

Content for opinion/comments

  • Identification of enterprise/association introducing comments
  • Reference to the notification
  • Description of the problem, .e.g. because the measure discriminates amongst foreign and national products, because it is overly burdensome to achieve the objective pursued.
