Internal Market: Orgalim Position paper on the New Legislative Framework

Published: 7 March 2022

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

Orgalim, representing Europe’s technology industries, is a strong supporter of the New Legislative Framework (NLF) and remains convinced that it is the best tool to support the proper functioning of the European Single Market for Goods. Our industries are directly and deeply impacted by harmonised legislation and we are convinced that the NLF is a success story for the Single Market and that it is still fit for the future. For this reason, we believe that changes should be made only in response to clear needs and that they should also be assessed in relation to the inevitable disruption that changes to the legal framework will bring.

In particular, Orgalim calls on legislators to maintain the fundamental principles outlined in the NLF, as they are essential parts of the framework and the reason why it has been so successful (see Annex I for a list of these principles).

We thank the European Commission for the opportunity to contribute to the evaluation of this cornerstone of Single Market legislation and we look forward to continuing to share our expertise on this important matter.
