Orgalime opinion on the proposed regulation laying down harmonised conditions for the marketing of the construction products

Published: 24 March 2010

Policies & Issues: Internal Market - Product Safety Legislation

Construction products are within the remit of Orgalime’s constituency. Our industry covers a heterogeneous sector, which includes 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; however, we feel that the current draft Regulation’s text still presents a number of points of concern that should be reconsidered.
