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.
