UKCA CEUpdated ‘Blue Guide’ 2022 Published

The ‘Blue Guide’ on the implementation of EU product rules 2022 has been published in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU). This includes post-Brexit information regarding the exit of the UK from the EU and the implications for the Northern Ireland market.

The Guide to the implementation of directives based on the New Approach and the Global Approach (the ‘Blue Guide’) was published in 2000. Since then, it has become one of the main reference documents explaining how to implement the legislation based on the New Approach, now covered by the New Legislative Framework (NLF).

The ‘Blue Guide’ was revised in 2014 to cover new developments and to ensure the broadest possible common understanding of the implementation of the NLF for the marketing of products. It was further revised and adapted in 2016.

This new version of the Guide builds on the past editions, but also reflects recent changes in the legislation and in particular the adoption of the new Regulation on Market Surveillance.

The revised document can be viewed / download here.
