The legal acts composing the New Legal Framework (NLF) package were published in the OJEU L 218/82 on 13 August 2008. The NLF package is the modernization of the New Approach for marketing products to strengthen the application of the internal market legislation.

The package is composed by two regulations and one decision:


  • REGULATION (EU) 2019/515 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 19 March 2019 on the mutual recognition of goods lawfully marketed in another Member State and repealing Regulation (EC) No 764/2008

  • REGULATION (EU) 2019/1020 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 20 June 2019 on market surveillance and compliance of products and amending Directive 2004/42/EC and Regulations (EC) No 765/2008 and (EU) No 305/2011

  • REGULATION (EC) No 765/2008 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 July 2008 setting out the requirements for accreditation and market surveillance relating to the marketing of products and repealing Regulation (EEC) No 339/93

  • DECISION No 768/2008/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 9 July 2008 on a common framework for the marketing of products, and repealing Council Decision 93/465/EEC


Regulation (EU) 2019/515 and Regulation (EU) 2019/2020 did not need to be transposed into the national legislations of the MSs since they are regulations and not directives. Therefore they were directly applicable from 1 January 2010.

Decision No 768/2008/EC could be used immediately but to be operational needed to be implemented into the text of the products directives when revised.
