As you know the LPRA are frequently approached to obtain the opinions and feedback of our members on various consultations, please find below details of a feedback request relating to the update of the 'Blue Guide' on EU products. We would encourage members to send their comments to the Secretariat HERE so that they can be incorporated into the official LPRA response or respond directly to the consultations using the links below.
The so-called ‘Blue Guide’ explains EU product rules and helps businesses and national inspectors apply these rules across different sectors and throughout the single market. We've started preparations for a new update of the Blue Guide and we're looking for your suggestions.
This update will reflect new EU legislation and in particular Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 on market surveillance. It will also include any relevant developments at international level. The new update should also better cover the digital age and the circular economy.
However, the aim is not to rewrite the Blue Guide completely, but rather to address any issues that may have come up due to new developments, or to develop further any points that would merit additional clarification in the current version.
Please send your suggestions on issues that should be included in the update to GROW-B1@ec.europa.eu
The consultation closes on 15 January 2020
