      The New Approach Directives contain three core points. First: they cover a large number of products that are subject to the same risks and can be described as being for the same purposes. Second: basic health and safety requirements for certain products are granted a high level of protection within the EU directives. Third: the European standards institutes develop the technical details. These standards are not compulsory in nature; the required level of safety can also be achieved in other ways.
