THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

(2) That notification comprises, inter alia, a summary of the relevant dossier, which the competent authority must send to the competent authorities of the other Member States and to the Commission, and which the Commission must immediately make available to the public. That summary must be drawn up in accordance with a particular format.

(3) That format should reflect the need to enable the fullest possible exchange of relevant information, presented in a standardised and easily comprehensible manner, without prejudice to the fact that the information thus provided cannot serve as the basis for an environmental risk assessment.
