  • Remarks: Due to procedure practicalities and to establish an effective plan for the work of the Committees, the dossier will be processed starting from 17/01/2020. Stakeholders are requested to provide any information relevant to the Dossier Submitter during the Annex XV Restriction Dossier process, either in any call for evidence or separately during the process. This information will be used, amongst other issues, to determine if any derogations are required for the potential restriction as these cannot be proposed without adequate risk and socio-economic information. If a derogation is not proposed by the Dossier Submitter then it will be incumbent on the relevant stakeholders to do so during any public consultation process with a full risk and socio-economic justification accompanying it.
