About mutual recognition

According to the EU principle of mutual recognition, all products that are lawfully marketed in one EEA Member State may also be sold in all the other Member States without having to be harmonized with national technical regulations. The principle of mutual recognition ensures market access for products that are not subject to EU harmonisation.
