- Consultation on Recast of the Placing on the Market and Supervision of Explosives for Civil Uses Directive (93/15/EEC)
The directive is one of nine being updated or ‘recast’ as part of a package of measures known as the EU’s ‘New Legislative framework’ (NLF) for the marketing of products. The measures are designed to help the internal markets for goods work better and to strengthen and modernise the conditions for placing a wide range of industrial products on the EU market. This consultation seeks views on the proposed amending Regulations, which will implement the recast. The recast reinforces safety requirements by ensuring that all products first placed on the market comply with essential safety requirements, are CE marked and conformity assessed by a notified body.
