Questions referred

Is Article 1 of Directive (EU) 2015/1535 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 9 September 2015 laying down a procedure for the provision of information in the field of technical regulations and of rules on Information Society services 1 to be interpreted as meaning that the provisions of the Vienna Betting Terminal Duty Law which provide for taxation of the operation of betting terminals are to be assessed as ‘technical regulations’ within the meaning of that provision?

Does the failure to notify the provisions of the Vienna Betting Terminal Duty Law within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2015/1535 mean that a duty such as the betting terminal duty may not be levied?
