Orgalime comments on EU’s position paper on the engineering industries and TTIP

Orgalime welcomes the publication of the EU’s position on a sectorial approach for the engineering industries http://trade.ec.europa.eu/doclib/html/153022.htm (mechanical, electrical and electronic sectors) in the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The publication of the EU’s position contributes to transparency and allows our industries to submit comments that could prove useful for drafting an annex on the engineering industries.

Orgalime supports an annex on the engineering industries, because we expect it to contain specific commitments or steps aimed at reducing costs stemming from regulatory differences in our sectors.

We also consider it important that the annex on the engineering industries should prevail, as foreseen, over the horizontal agreement on regulatory cooperation. Thereby, it could be more ambitious in some aspects, for example it could include provisions on streamlined regulatory acts issued by EU Member States and US States (defined as “non-central level” in the proposal for regulatory cooperation).
