There is no requirement for the preparation of an Annex XV dossier to initiate the restriction process, no public consultations are requested, opinions of RAC and SEAC are not required and there is no need to consult with the Forum for Exchange of Information on Enforcement.

The Commission invites every interested citizen and party to participate in the consultation until the 22nd of January 2016.
