Orgalime opinion on the proposed Regulation laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of the Construction Products

Published:
21 April, 2009
Policies and Issues:
Construction Products Regulation (CPR)

Reference: COM (2008)311 and IMCO report A6-0068/2009

Construction products are within the remit of Orgalime’s constituency.  Our industry covers is a heterogeneous sector which covers a wide variety of products, including structural metal products, metal structures and parts of structures, metal building and construction products in general.

Orgalime believes that the European industry needs a clear and harmonised framework, avoiding different national implementation and interpretations, which have for a long time given rise to significant problems and barriers to trade for European manufacturers.  We welcome the revision of the existing Directive and we think that the amendments recently approved by EP IMCO Committee provide a number of improvements to the proposal of the European Commission.

However, we feel that the current draft Regulation’s text still presents a number of points of concern that should be reconsidered in view of the incoming vote in the plenary session of the European Parliament.
