ORGALIME Comments on the Commission draft specifications for an extended impact assessment of the LVD

Published: 26 March 2004

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

If we agree with the Commission that sufficient background information and the most important features of the planned update of the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) have been defined at this stage (with the draft “LVD Update.5”), we believe that it is essential that the Commission states clearly its policy objectives with regard to the revision of the directive in a more consistent manner than just a “bullet list”.

The questionnaire should provide sufficient background information in clear and concise language to facilitate responses.
