Environment: Orgalim Position Paper on the draft French Decree on consumer information for waste-generating products

Published: 21 December 2021

Policies & Issues: Environment, Internal Market - Compliance, Standards & Enforcement

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, fully supports the comments submitted by our French member FIEEC on the new draft French Decree on consumer information concerning the environmental qualities and characteristics of waste-generating products.

We do not support the provisions of this proposed new draft French Decree because they will restrict the free movement of goods in the European Union Internal Market. To secure the functioning of the EU Internal Market – one of the EU’s success stories and major achievements that has improved prosperity and opportunities for European citizens and businesses – it is crucial to have a harmonised approach throughout the EU to the various measures to inform consumers on the environmental qualities and characteristics of products. In addition, requirements must be workable, proportionate and of added value to consumers.
