Formal objections

This page contains a list of European Commission decisions taken on the basis of formal objections raised against publication of the references of harmonised standards in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

When an EU Member State or the European Parliament considers that a harmonised standard (see definition in Article 2(1)(c) of Regulation (EU)No 1025/2012) does not entirely satisfy the requirements which it aims to cover and which are set out in the relevant Union harmonisation legislation, it shall inform the Commission thereof with a detailed explanation. This procedure is given in Article 11 of Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012. After such objection the Commission shall, after consulting all the Member States, adopt a decision which maintains or enables, restricts or fully removes the references to the harmonised standards concerned in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).

All such Decisions are published in the C series of the OJEU and on the basis of Article 11(2) of Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012, the Commission shall publish information on its website on the harmonised standards that have been subject to decisions. This page covers the Commission decisions taken after 01/01/2013.
