Subject: Open public consultation on the evaluation of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC
 

On 22 September 2016, The European Commission published an open public consultation in the framework of the ongoing study on the evaluation of the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC.

 

The consultation consists of an online questionnaire, through EUSurvey, available in 6 official languages of the European Union: German, English, Spanish, French, Italian and Polish. It runs during 12 weeks, from 22 September until 16 December 2016.

 

We invite all the citizens, and in particular companies, users (workers and consumers), public authorities, notified bodies, standardisation bodies and other sectorial interested parties at European, national and local level, to actively participate in this initiative, by answering the questionnaire and providing comments on the main issues related to the evaluation of the concerned EU legislation. Such contributions will be taken into due consideration in the final results of the study, as well as for the next possible developments in the sectorial legislation on Machinery.
