DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE No 176/2018

of 21 September 2018

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2021/290]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

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

Whereas:

(3)
