European Commission brief outcome consultation on the possible revision of the Mutual Recognition Regulation (EC) No 764/2008 (GEN – 749.00)

GEN – 749.00. The Commission received 153 contributions on its public consultation on market surveillance. These are presented as a tabled overview and a summary in a 17-page document with annexes.

The Mutual Recognition Regulation (EC) No 764/2008 does not seem to be used very much within the industry Eurovent represents, except where national requirements for construction products apply. Little information is available on this within Eurovent.

Of note are is the estimates to adapt t national rules:

‘As regards businesses, the main costs incurred are triggered by the need to adapt the products to the applicable national rules, when mutual recognition is either denied or not used for penetrating the market. These costs are estimated on average at 23 000 Euro per product and per market. High costs are also related to delays in entering a market, estimated at 115 000 Euro per product and per market, and to lost opportunities, when businesses relinquish entering a market because of different national rules that require adapting the products. On average, the latest are estimated at 136 000 Euro per product and per market. The costs related to challenging administrative decisions denying market access are considered as less important, mainly because few economic operators choose to do so. The estimates are around 32 000 Euro per product and per market. There are however considerable variations in the answers.’

It is expected that no fundamental revision of the regulation 764/2008 would take place.
