Reports of the Internal Market and Consumer Affairs Committee of the European Parliament on the alignment of 9 directives with Decision 768/2008

Published: 3 August 2012

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Compliance, Standards & Enforcement

Orgalime welcomes the reports of Ms Roithová on the alignment of 9 directives with the New Legislative Framework. We appreciate the efforts of the Rapporteur and the members of the Internal Market and Consumer Affairs Committee (IMCO) of the European Parliament to resist the incorporation of too many suggestions for changes which would clearly deviate from a pure alignment (e.g. a reform of the accreditation system).

We also welcome the reaffirmation of the principle of non-retroactivity of the law in several provisions, as this will enhance the legal certainty for all economic operators.
