§ Dr. Vaughan
Within the European Community, procedures for mutual recognition of certification by member States' notified national bodies are provided for certain electrical equipment, which includes GLS lamps, by Council directive 73/23/EEC. There are no reciprocal certification procedures between United Kingdom and Hungary for GLS lamps.
