Free white paper: Increased complexity in CE relevant standards

Background information and guidance regarding the publication practice of the European Comission

For some months there has been a problem with the prompt provision of harmonised standards in the Official Journal of the European Union. The reasons for this are both numerous and lacking in transparency, resulting in a high level of uncertainty in standards users in all sectors and all sizes of company.

This white paper by Michael Loerzer aims to provide clarity: about the background, what the presumption of conformity means and how, in spite of the unclear situation, you can keep track of legal requirements with a manageable amount of effort.

Please use the following link if you would like to get the complete whitepaper as PDF.

If there are any further questions we didn’t answer in the whitepaper, please feel free to contact us.
