IMCO draft Report on European Standardisation– Rapporteur: Lara Comi (COM(2011)0315 – C7 0150/2011 – 2011/0150(COD))

Orgalime welcomes the Report drafted by Ms Comi, Rapporteur to the EP Committee on Internal Market and Consumer protection on the Commission Proposal for a Regulation on European standardisation - COM(2011)315, as commented in our position paper of 2 February 2012.

Although the report mirrors many of our concerns, we believe that there is still some room for further improvements, to be discussed in the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Affairs (IMCO) whose vote is scheduled on 20 March 2012, and final discussions in the Council Working Group on Technical Harmonisation in the coming weeks.
