Prevention of technical barriers to trade
"Don’t let barriers stop your success".
In your business success is very important. In order to achieve it you try to detect obstacles before they have any negative effects. The same principle applies in the internal market for the technical barriers.
The (EU) 2015/1535 procedure aims to prevent creating barriers in the internal market before they materialize. Member States notify their legislative projects regarding products and Information Society services to the Commission which analyses these projects in the light of EU legislation. Member States participate on the equal foot with the Commission in this procedure and they can also issue their opinions on the notified drafts.
The Technical Regulation Information System:
- helps you to be informed about new draft technical regulations and
- allows you to participate in the 2015/1535 procedure.
Thus, the 2015/1535 procedure is also a tool of dialogue between the Commission and Member States in which your voice can be heard.
As from today you can use our automatic alert system, by subscribing to one or more notification categories. TRIS will automatically notify you via e-mail as soon as a new notified text is received in the category/ies you selected.
Please note that on 1st February 2020, the UK withdrew from the European Union. The video and other general guidance materials on this webpage were produced before that date and reflect the situation when the UK was still a Member State of the European Union.
