The European Commission has issued the „Commission Notice“ of 5 April 2016 called „The 'Blue Guide' on the implementation of EU product rules 2016“, which is intended to a better understanding of EU product rules and to their more uniform and coherent application across different sectors and throughout the single market.
It is addressed to the Member States and others who need to be informed of the provisions designed to ensure the free circulation of products as well as a high level of protection throughout the Union.
The „Blue Guide 2016“ is intended purely as a guidance document.
