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.

The Report echoes many of the concerns expressed in Orgalime’s last contribution (05/12/2011) further to the EP public hearing on 23 November 2011 and includes concrete proposals that improve significantly the Commission proposal of a Regulation on European Standardisation of 1st June 2011.
