Alignment Package of 9 product harmonisation Directives with Decision 768/2008/EC - NLF or 'Goods package'

New Legislative Framework (NLF)

Orgalime welcomes the New Legislative Framework and therefore supports the Commission Proposal to align 9 product harmonisation Directives as closely as possible with the New Legislative Framework (Regulation (EC) 765/2008 and Decision 768/2008/EC).

The Directives should be aligned with the NLF in a consistent way in order to avoid any unjustified discrepancies. As already stated during the discussions on the 2008 Marketing of Goods Package, we believe that EU legislation should be simpler in order to be easier and less costly to comply with, easier to enforce and more efficient to support investments, growth and jobs in Europe. This is even more true in these challenging times for European manufacturing. The consistent application of the NLF will be a practical step towards helping to reach this goal.
