Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Orgalime welcomes the opportunity to comment on the documents presented at the EMC Working Party meeting of 30 June 2009 with regard to the alignment of the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC with the New Legislative Framework (NLF), Decision 768/2008/EC mainly.

The EMC Directive 2004/108/EC is an important piece of product legislation as it affects almost all electrical and electronic equipment.  It resulted from a thorough review process where, based on the experience with its predecessor 89/336/EEC, the conformity assessment procedures were adapted in a way that was acceptable to all stakeholders and provisions were introduced to ensure a better enforcement of the Directive.
