This week, CCIA and other industry groups, expressed concerns with the ongoing negotiations on the draft EU regulation on compliance and enforcement. While we support attempts to combat unsafe products and strengthen the system of market surveillance in Europe, we worry that various amendments will undermine consumer safety, overburden authorities, and strengthen the position of rogue traders. The current text could also have negative consequences for the EU’s trade relations. We therefore urge that the new law be based on evidence and guided by an impact assessment to ensure it meets the needs and expectations of European consumers, businesses and enforcers.
