DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 255/2016

of 2 December 2016

amending Protocol 47 (on the abolition of technical barriers to trade in wine) to the EEA Agreement [2018/1191]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

Having regard to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (‘the EEA Agreement’), and in particular Article 98 thereof,
