Notification System

Notification System

The notification system was set up to inform stakeholders about policy actions related to European standards. It helps ensure proper consultation and market relevance before the action is taken. The obligation to publish information on a website stems from Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012.

The purpose of this webpage is to:

  • notify stakeholders about policy actions related to European standardisation (Article 12);
  • publish information on Commission Implementing Decisions after Formal Objections to harmonised standards (Article 11(2)).

Any updates to this webpage can be followed by an RSS-feed.
