||European Machinery Industry Press Release on EC proposal for Market surveillance
The European machinery industry, represented by CECE, CECIMO, CEMA, FEM and EUROMAP, warmly welcomes the proposal from the Commission, as it reflects many of the suggestions that our industry has made during the past months. Whilst we fully support the positive aspects of this package, we also call on the European Parliament and Council to improve the overall effectiveness of the proposed scheme.
On the setting up of a European Market Surveillance Forum, Jan van ver Velden, President of FEM, said: "We welcome this initiative which should help to coordinate the activities of all the national authorities and directly spot a sectoral market surveillance problem. However, the role of the industry in that Forum should go beyond that of a mere observer so that our technical expertise can be fully used."
