Orgalime would like to reiterate its position that new legislation on obligatory marking of origin (made in) of imports would not have any positive effects on the competitiveness of the European engineering industries.

Orgalime is of the opinion that maintaining a competitive and strong industrial base in Europe requires other essential elements, such as favourable framework conditions, open markets, a focus on innovation and the respect of IPRs.

Orgalime believes that the EU has enough legislation which obliges all market operators, including importers, to respect technical, environmental, social and safety laws. We however feel that the enforcement of this legislation and efficient market surveillance need to be further improved.
