(2) Period during which the draft may not be adopted.
(3) No standstill period since the Commission accepts the grounds of urgent adoption invoked by the notifying Member State.
(4) No standstill period since the measure concerns technical specifications or other requirements or rules on services linked to fiscal or financial measures, pursuant to the
third indent of the second paragraph of Article 1(11) of Directive 98/34/EC.
(5) Information procedure closed.

The Commission draws attention to the judgement delivered on 30 April 1996 in the ‘CIA security’ Case
(C-194/94, ECR I-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 national
courts which must decline to apply a national technical regulation which has not been notified in
accordance with the Directive.
This judgement 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
and consequently unenforceable against individuals.
