Atlas on Child Appealing Designs for Household Appliances - Joint letter to the European Commission

Published:
19 April, 2012
Policies and Issues:
Low Voltage Directive (LVD)
Sectors:
Electrical & Electronic

Recently the Chair of the LVD AdCo recommended market surveillance authorities to use an 'Atlas on Child Appealing Designs for Household Appliances' which was developed in the framework of the 2010 EMARS/PROSAFE project.

However, Orgalime and CECED believe that this guide in its current version, does not reflect the views of industry stakeholders involved in the initial project and does not adequately take the Low Voltage Directive (LVD - 2006/95/EC) provisions into consideration.

It therefore raises concerns over legal certainty that manufacturers deserve in order to place their products on the market.
