Detail

Closed consultation that sought views on the European Commission’s proposals to align a package of nine Directives to the New Legislative Framework for Community Harmonisation Legislation for Products (NLF), and in particular the provisions of Decision 768/2008/EC. The Directives include low voltage, simple pressure vessels, non-automatic weighing instruments, civil explosives, equipment for use in explosive atmospheres (ATEX), lifts and their safety components, measuring instruments, pyrotechnic articles, and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC). Aims to address the number of non-compliant products that reach the market through improved traceability. See URN 12/551 for the related impact assessments. Consultation period ended 6 April 2012.
