What is it about?

Why is it important?
QRD template texts are used in all package leaflets of the European Union; however, these texts are responsible for more than 20% of package leaflets' word count. To keep package leaflets concise, the current QRD template should be significantly shortened, which would improve all package leaflets in each EU country where the template is implicated.
