This Decision amended Annex XVI of the Association Agreement (Approximation List – DCFTA Chapter 3 - Technical Barriers to Trade, Standardisation, Metrology, Accreditation and Conformity Assessment) which lists the EU acts which Moldova should approximate in Moldovan law. This Annex was amended because several listed EU acts had been amended, recast or repealed and replaced by new EU acts since the initialing of the Association Agreement on 29 November 2013. The amendments include 18 new EU legal acts.
Deadlines for Moldova’s approximation of these new EU legal acts were extended to provide for more time to Moldova to include them in its national legislation and to provide for an adaptation period to Moldova’s manufacturers and importers.
This Decision entered into force on 19 October 2016.
