Conference on Market Surveillance and Machinery, 24 November 2011, Brussels

The Enterprise and Industry Directorate General of European Commission organised a Conference on 'Market Surveillance and Machinery' which focused on market surveillance in the machinery sector. The conference took place on 24 November 2011 in the Albert Borschette Conference Centre in Brussels with an attendance of more than 200 people from industry, the European Institutions, Member State market surveillance and customs authorities and others. The speakers were from the Commission, European Parliament, Industry and the Market Surveillance Authorities.

The conference dealt with Market surveillance for industrial products, focusing on machinery together with topics such as the New Legislative Framework and the Sectoral Directives including more particularly capital goods falling under the Machinery Directive.

This event was organised in line with the commitments taken by the Commission in the October 2010 Communication on An Integrated Industrial Policy for the Globalisation Era to ensure the timely implementation of the Single Market Act, to draw up a multi-annual EU action plan to develop EU market surveillance and to develop guidelines for customs control in the area of product safety. It looked into the important role of market surveillance for growth and jobs and sustainability as well as its contribution to innovation.

Best Practice examples from the EU and beyond were raised and the event concluded with the launch of a common industry platform for Market Surveillance that will serve as an important tool for the EU Market Surveillance Authorities in carrying out their job:
