I was in touch with the EU about this last night, as the wording of the letter was a bit ambiguous

Essentially they're saying they have some "concerns" but they haven't gone into any detail.

So if you are an applicant for one of the strings affected you probably need to ask the EU what they'd like to see .. 

Yes - that is vague :)
