New Legislative Framework


The New Legislative Framework (NLF)aligns arrangements for accreditation and market surveillance of products. It creates a more coherent legal framework for the marketing of products in the European Union (EU) Internal Market.

It will make it easier for Member States to take action against non-compliant products, improve the role of Notified Bodies (ensuring consistency in their services) and will help businesses by using common terms and definitions across the Directives.
