DECISION OF THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE

No 13/2017

of 3 February 2017

amending Annex II (Technical regulations, standards, testing and certification) to the EEA Agreement [2018/1747]

THE EEA JOINT COMMITTEE,

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

(2)
