Product Contact Point (PCP)

In Slovenia, the PCP has been operating within SIST since May 13, 2009, in line with the Regulation (EC) No 764/2008 on mutual recognition, and on the basis of the Decision by the RS Government.

When asked to provide information on technical regulations for a certain type of products for which there is no single Community rule, the Contact Point will make a search to find out whether there exist technical regulations in Slovenia as well as in other Member States for the particular products, and when so, it will provide information on those regulations.

The Contact Point is obliged to respond to all inquiries within 15 working days of receipt.

The following guides and non binding guidelines have been adopted in order to facilitate the implementation of the Mutual Recognition Regulation in some specific sectors:

 

 

Product Contact Point for Construction

The Contact Point was established on July 1st , 2013 by Decision of the Government of the Republic of Slovenia on appointing the SIST Product Contact Point for Construction, whereby it assumed the tasks related to the requirements of Article 10 of the Regulation (EU) No 305/2011 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 March 2011 laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of construction products and repealing Council Directive 89/106/EEC (1 MB).

In relation with the tasks laid down in this Regulation, each Member State shall ensure that the Product Contact Points for Construction provide information, using transparent and easily understandable terms, on the provisions within its territory aimed at fulfilling basic requirements for construction works applicable for the intended use of each construction product.

The Contact Point is obliged to respond to all inquiries within 15 working days of receipt.

The inquiries of those interested relate to various types of construction products, and an FAQ base of Member States is kept by the European Commission.
