Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation
In 2001, the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) Working Party decided to start up a revision process for the LVD.
Our industry, which has seen the introduction of a significant volume of new legislation over the past years affecting products regulated under the Low Voltage Directive, feels that it is now essential to provide manufacturers with a period of regulatory stability.
In our opinion this directive represents an excellent example of EC-harmonisation, providing for a high safety levels and ensuring free trade in the internal market, we therefore feel that the proposed revision of the Low Voltage Directive, which we consider unnecessary at the present time, should be abandoned.
