New Legislative Framework

Guidance relating to the implementation of the New Legislative Framework.

The New Legislative Framework (NLF) introduces common administrative requirements and clarifies the duties of those in the supply chain. It is designed to make it easier for economic operators to comply with the legislation, set common performance assessment criteria for the bodies which determine whether or not a product meets the essential requirements of the legislation, and make the legislation easier to understand and use.

The relevant regulations are derived from EU Directives and fully align the UK to the NLF.
