Orgalime’s priorities for revision of the Blue Guide 2014

Published: 22 June 2015

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

Orgalime thanks the European Commission for consulting stakeholders on the ongoing revision of the Blue Guide which we believe is essential as a supporting document in the context of the New Legislative Framework (NLF). 

In the present position, developed in the table hereafter, we include Orgalime’s list of priorities for the revision of the latest version of the Blue Guide, which was published in 2014. We have tried to provide a solution for most of the points that we consider necessary to revise. Nevertheless, we would need more time to provide suggestions on the interpretation of the definition of “placing on the market” in the light of new e-commerce practices, including the role of fulfilment centres in the value chain.
