Orgalime answer to the Public Consultation on the possible impacts of an amendment of the LVD

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Over the past years the engineering industry has seen the introduction of a significant volume of new legislation affecting products regulated under the Low Voltage Directive and we now feel that it is essential to provide manufacturers with a period of regulatory stability.

Our answer to the Public Consultation of stakeholders is consistent with past position papers where we call for the abandoning of the proposed revision of the Low Voltage Directive, as we consider it unnecessary at the present time.
