PPE Regulation - Guidance document on the implementation of Article 47 on transition provisions is now available

A Guidance document on the implementation of Article 47 on transition provisions of the PPE Regulation has been published by the European Commission. You may download the document through the following link: ec.europa.eu/docsroom/documents/26782

It is intended to prevent possible problems and distortions coming from different interpretation and practical approaches, in particular with respect to reapplying for EU type examination certificates under the Regulation that are admitted up till 2023 and allowing products certified under the Directive 89/686/EEC to be placed on the market up till 2023.

The Guidance document is very much in line with the Euratex Position Paper released early October advocating for a smooth transition period from the Directive 89/686/EEC to the PPE Regulation (EU) 2016/425.
