The Europe-link Information
Service on EU Product Approvals, is a multi-client, multi-sectoral
service covering European Union programmes of harmonisation
or mutual recognition of specifications, conformity assessment,
technical regulations and related policies, in both established
and new sectors of trade. It offers bi-monthly summaries of
key news, comments on its significance and potential impact,
and provides electronic links to key free-of-charge official
sources of data.

The two key benefits of the
service are cost-effectiveness and balanced analysis.
Both stem from long experience of knowing where to look and
of the impact of related programmes, past or present. For
clients, the need for in-house teams can be reduced, and understanding
of practical implications of external programmes can be improved.
Where desired, long-term support can be offered to integrate
reports and other data into in-house Intranet services of
our clients, to optimise accessibility. Clients for this service
are normally large private or public organisations with multi-sectoral
Content includes both factual
updates and strategic comments. Coverage ranges from
revisions to EU technical regulations or the issue of new
guidance documents or standards programmes, to broader reports
on the evolution of policies and programmes such as the EU’s
eco-design programme or common ground-rules for zero-energy
buildings. The service also monitors major global harmonisation
programmes in which the European Union is a prime participant.
