1. Electrical Engineering and Electronics

Bulgarian legal framework in the field of electrical engineering and electronics is fully liberalized to ensure free movement of goods and services. In the same time, Bulgarian legislation is aligned with EU technical legislation.


Basic principle of the law in this field is the free movement of goods and services. For this reason, only basic safety characteristics of the products are introduced and the use of standards is voluntary. The lack of mandatory regulation in the process of conformity assessment in the sector of electronics and electrical permits, allows for less governmental intervention and reduced regulatory burden.


In the field of standardization, harmonized standards are implemented according to the internal rules of the European standardization organizations. Competent authority responsible for organization and coordination of activities with respect to national standards is the Bulgarian Institute for Standardization, which is the national standardization body of the Republic of Bulgaria, including with respect to preparation, approval and distribution of the Bulgarian State Standard (BSS). A key principle under the law is voluntary application of standards, equal treatment and access for all parties with interest in standardization work.
