The Commission draws attention to the judgment given on 30 April 1996 in the ‘CIA Security’ case
(C-194/94 — ECR I, p. 2201), in which the Court of Justice ruled that Articles 8 and 9 of Directive
98/34/EC (formerly 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.
If you require any information on these notifications, please contact the national departments listed below:
