Revision of the R&TTE Directive, comments on the first proposal by the Commission,TCAM 31 (14) / (15)

Published: 17 November 2010

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Orgalime welcomes the possibility to comment on the first proposal of a revised R&TTE Directive as presented in TCAM documents 31(14)/(15).

First of all, we would like to express our relief that the EU Commission has decided not to include a mandatory registration system into the proposal. This avoids enormous efforts for manufacturers represented by Orgalime.

However, there are 2 issues that remain of great concern to us:

a) Inclusion of pure broadcast receivers into the R&TTE Directive
b) Overlapping of requirements from simultaneously applying directives
