CEEMET-ORGALIME letter to Commissioner Figel

Orgalime, as the largest manufacturing sector, and one of the key sectors for achieving the Lisbon agenda, asks the Commission to adhere to its intention of simplifying and streamlining legislation, specifically in relation to the new draft directive on the protection of workers from risks arising from exposure to optical radiation at work. Orgalime would like to stress the importance of carrying out an impact assessment, and consultation with stakeholders and experts in the field before reviewing the proposal and modifying it accordingly or withdrawing it completely.
