Personal protective equipment (PPE)

The current PPE Directive permits the free movement of PPE in Europe while ensuring a high level of protection for its users. The proposal is aligned with the new legislative framework and seeks to modernise the Directive. It is expected that the proposed extension of the product coverage and the change of three basic health and safety requirements will be carefully assessed by the IMCO Members. The Commission will present the proposal on 3 December AM.

   
Cableway installations – 3 December AM

Mr López-Istúriz will present his draft report on the proposal for a regulation on cableway installations. The rapporteur supports the proposal and the change from a directive into a regulation as it will simplify the regulatory environment. Special attention is given to guarantee the consistency of the text with the new legislative framework decision and the alignment package adopted during the 7th legislature. The rapporteur also proposes to include specific market surveillance rules.

Presentation of the Impact assessment on Trade secrets

DG MARKT presented the proposal for a Directive on the protection of trade secrets against unlawful acquisition, use and disclosure, and the accompanying impact assessment. The proposal seeks to improve the protection of trade secret holders in the single market, which is currently fragmented by varied and uneven national legal regimes, by harmonising Member States' civil laws. This includes notably clarifying the basic concepts related to the definition and unlawful acquisition of trade secrets, and providing the necessary safeguards for the protection of interests of other parties, for example for avoiding abusive litigation and for guaranteeing confidentiality during litigation.
 
Members stressed the merits of the Commission's proposal, especially for SMEs and micro enterprises, and set out some areas for improvement that could be addressed, such as introducing explicit language on the principle of minimum harmonisation. They also underlined the need to balance the protection of trade secrets with the protection of whistle-blowers and workers working in R&D intensive industries; the importance of ensuring confidentiality during litigation; as well as the need to extend the prescription period.

Velkomst
 
 

IMCO udvalget er ansvarligt for lovgivningsmæssig overvågning og kontrol, hvad angår EU-regler om fri bevægelighed for varer og tjenesteydelser, fri bevægelighed for erhvervsudøvere, toldpolitik, standardisering og forbrugernes økonomiske interesser.  Udvalgsmedlemmerne arbejder for at nedbringe økonomiske handelshindringer og forenkle lovgivningen for at øge konkurrenceevnen overalt på det indre marked, idet de samtidig varetager forbrugernes interesser på en lang række områder.

De kan følge udvalgets arbejde på denne hjemmeside, som bl.a. giver adgang til dagsordener, mødedokumenter, oplysninger om høringer/workshops, videostreaming og vores nyhedsbrev.

Et velfungerende indre marked er nøglen til skabelse af velstand, innovation og større konkurrenceevne, som gavner virksomheder og forbrugere.  Vi vil støde på mange udfordringer og muligheder, især frigørelsen af det potentiale, der ligger i det indre marked på det digitale område og det indre marked for tjenesteydelser. 
 
Vores opgave er at garantere sikre produkter, beskytte forbrugerrettighederne, holde forbrugerne underrettet om produkter/tjenesteydelser, slå ned på konkurrencefjendtlig adfærd og nedbringe administrative byrder.

Udvalget samarbejder med alle EU-medlemsstater om at sikre, at reglerne for det indre marked er praktisk gennemførlige, overholdes fuldt ud og håndhæves rettidigt.

Det er et privilegium at være formand for dette udvalg og samarbejde med medlemmer på tværs af det politiske spektrum om at skabe virkelige fordele for forbrugere, virksomheder og andre organisationer på hele det indre marked.
