Time to make market surveillance work: machinery industry provides impetus to support public action
On 24th November 2011 an industry support platform was launched at the occasion of a one day conference on market surveillance of machinery hosted by the European Commission. Aimed at market surveillance authorities and market operators, the platform is designed specifically for machinery (the ‘capital goods’ market) and consists in a resource database to assess compliance of machinery equipment with relevant EU regulatory requirements.
The platform is a joint initiative of 7 European trade associations, 3 from the machinery industry, including CECIP. It reflects the industry’s commitment to play an active role in improving market surveillance for machinery. The idea is embedded in a manifesto, signed during the conference, and which offers 10 key recommendations for effective market surveillance.
