Legitimate manufacturers to benefit from improved Product safety and Market Surveillance Package


On 13 February, at a joint press conference by Antonio TAJANI, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship and Tonio BORG, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy announced details about the much awaited ‘Product safety and Market Surveillance Package'.  Adrian Harris, Director General of Orgalime announced "At last the opportunity to level the playing field for legitimate market operators has been realised.  The package provides a solid footing on which to build a market surveillance system that not only protects the consumers from a health and safety aspect, but also (from our perspective), just as important, also the companies that invest much time, energy and money to ensure that their products are compliant to all European legislation, namely in the environment and energy fields. This is essential to keep manufacturing investment and jobs in Europe".
