We believe that the planned NRTL Program Directive has the potential to facilitate US trade with the EU, especially in areas where the European Accreditation system has already been producing satisfactory results since 2010 (date of entry into force of Regulation EU 765/2008). With the above-mentioned amendments duly taken into consideration, such legislation would represent a real and pragmatic step towards further developing the transatlantic market in the engineering sectors in the framework of the ongoing TTIP discussions.
