Comments to the Blue Guide

Published: 10 September 2014

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Compliance, Standards & Enforcement

This table includes Orgalime’s views on the parts of the Blue Guide text that caused diverging interpretations among manufacturers. We consider it essential that these parts should be improved in order for the Blue Guide to serve as a useful guidance document for all interested parties.
This list of comments on the text of the Blue Guide complements the Orgalime’s list of horizontal questions on the Directives aligned with the New Legislative Framework. The latter raises points where the legislation may require further clarification. Therefore, we would appreciate and expect the relevant clarifications to be included in the Blue Guide’s text.
