Regulation on mutual recognition

The Danish Business Authority has developed Guidelines for the Regulation on Mutual Recognition of Goods.

To make the principle of mutual recognition fully operational, the European Parliament and the Council have adopted Regulation (EC) No 764/2008.

The regulation defines the rights and obligations of national authorities that intend to take a decision that may restrict certain non-harmonised products' free movement in one Member State, when the products have already been lawfully marketed in other Member States. In particular, the regulation lays down the rules and procedures to be followed by the national competent authorities, and provides for the establishment of Product Contact Points in all Member States to contribute to the achievement of the aim of the regulation to reduce the risk of unlawfully resticting businesses' access to EU's Single Market.
