CECED and Orgalime have been invited to participate as stakeholders in the 'Joint Market Surveillance Action on Child Appealing Designs' of EMARS/PROSAFE.
We would like to express our disappointment that during the entire project stakeholders were given insufficient time to provide feedback, which made the consultation with our members very difficult and sometimes impossible. Although industry stakeholders were invited to the meetings and asked for their opinion, very few of our contributions were taken into account and no counter arguments were tabled.
Although we see some improvement in the Version 2 of the Atlas (of 04-11-2010), we do not recognise much of our input. We would therefore welcome that the project group includes a section to the Atlas which would highlight the level of consensus reached by all stakeholders.
