What is the 98/34 Procedure ?

The 98/34/EC Directive (formerly 83/189/EEC) sets up a procedure which imposes an obligation upon the Member States to notify to the Commission and to each other all the draft technical regulations concerning products and soon Information Society Services before they are adopted in national law. Such procedure aims at providing transparency and control with regard to those regulations. Since they could create unjustified barriers between Member States, their notification in the draft form and subsequent evaluation of their content in the course of the procedure help to diminish this risk.
