The Commission draws attention to the judgment given on 30 April 1996 in the ‘CIA Security’
case (C-194/94), in which the Court of Justice ruled that Articles 8 and 9 of Directive
83/189/EEC are to be interpreted as meaning that individuals may rely on them before the
national court which must decline to apply a national technical regulation which has not been
notified in accordance with the Directive.

This judgment confirms the Commission’s communication of 1 October 1986 (OJ C 245,
1.10.1986, p. 4).

Accordingly, breach of the obligation to notify renders the technical regulations concerned
inapplicable, so that they are unenforceable against individuals.

Information on these notifications can be obtained from the national administrations, a list of
which was published in Official Journal of the European Communities C 324 of 30 October
