Orgalime Comments on the draft report of Ms Roithová on the alignment of 9 Directives with Decision 768/2008 – NLF or “Goods Package”

New Legislative Framework (NLF)

Orgalime welcomes the Draft Reports prepared by Ms Roithová, the Rapporteur of the Internal Market and Consumer Affairs Committee of the European Parliament. These reports mirror most of our concerns about inconsistencies in the Commission’s recast proposal.

We especially welcome the Rapporteur’s suggestions to:

- further align the 9 directives with the NLF (including a reference to in-house accredited bodies) and ensure legal certainty (reference to the principle of non-retroactivity of the law);

- reduce the red tape on issuing the declaration of conformity (possibility of an electronic format);

- insist on ensuring better market surveillance for products placed on the internal market.
