20. Every draft code which is submitted for approval must contain a clear and concise explanatory statement, which provides details as to the purpose of the code, the scope of the code and how it will facilitate the effective application of this Regulation. This will assist in expediting the process and in providing the requisite clarity to accompany a submission. The submission must also include supporting documentation, where relevant, to underpin the draft code and explanatory statement.
