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.

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.

Suq Uniku li jiffunzjona sewwa huwa importanti biex jiġu sfruttati l-prosperità, l-innovazzjoni u l-kompetittività akbar, li minnhom jibbenefikaw in-negozji u l-konsumaturi.  Għandna ħafna sfidi u opportunitajiet quddiemna, speċjalment li nisfruttaw il-potenzjal tas-Suq Uniku Diġitali u s-suq uniku fis-servizzi. 
 
Il-missjoni tagħna hija li niżguraw li jkun hemm prodotti sikuri, nissalvagwardjaw id-drittijiet tal-konsumaturi, inżommuhom infurmati dwar il-prodotti u s-servizzi, u niġġieldu l-imġiba anti-kompetittiva u nnaqsu l-piżijiet amministrattivi.

Il-Kumitat jaħdem mal-Istati Membri kollha tal-UE sabiex jiżgura li r-regoli tal-UE jkunu prattikabbli u li jkunu implimentati kif xieraq u infurzati fiż-żmien maħsub.

Huwa privileġġ għalija li nkun il-President ta' dan il-Kumitat importanti u li naħdem flimkien ma' membri mill-ispettru politiku kollu, sabiex niksbu benefiċċji għall-konsumaturi, negozji u organizzazzjonijiet oħrajn madwar is-Suq Uniku.
