Commission proposes to repeal and replace Machinery Directive with new Regulation

On 21 April, the European Commission adopted a proposal for a Regulation on machinery products. This Regulation would have the effect of repealing and replacing the so-called Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC). The proposal is open for feedback from the public until 5 July 2021.

Published Roadmap open for feedback until 2 June 2021

The Commission has submitted the Roadmap for feedback within 4 weeks. After this period, a dedicated meeting of the Consultation Forum will be organised to discuss the preparation of the Working Plan. It is expected that the Working Plan could be published as a Communication in the third quarter of 2021. Of the possible new items listed two may be relevant to Eurovent: swimming pool heaters and industrial sensors. Relevant to all members will be horizontal measures relating to lightweight design, recycled content, ecological profile, durability, firmware and software, scarce and critical raw materials. While looking at the Working Plan, the consultation on the Sustainable Products Initiative should be kept in mind.
