Comments are welcomed by the Agency on the following Notices of Proposed Amendments (NPAs).

A Member State can request - not later than two weeks prior the expiring of the consultation deadline - an extension of the consultation period for translating the NPA at its own expenses. Such an extension may not exceed the time of 1 month in order to avoid delays in the rulemaking process.

The Agency has developed a Comment Response Tool (CRT) that will be used to automate the consultation process for Notices of Proposed Amendments (NPAs). The CRT allows users to review NPAs and place their comments.
