Ukrainian producers can now get acquainted with the EU Blue Guide in Ukrainian language to better understand the EU product rules and their application across different sectors of the single market. This publication of the European Commission aims to promote understanding of the regulatory regime of EU products. It is widely used in practice by economic entities, including manufacturers, importers and distributors which are operating in the EU or supply their products to the European market. The Blue Guide is a thorough manual for conformity assessment bodies and authorities of the Member States of the EU.
The EU Blue Guide is addressed to parties, who need to be informed of free circulation of products (e.g. accreditation and standardisation bodies, trade and consumer associations, manufacturers, importers, distributors, conformity assessment bodies and trade unions). This Guide is applied in the EU Member States, as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, as well as Turkey in certain cases.
