Information bulletins 21 – 1/2017 – update on European legislation (GEN – 754.00)

GEN – 754.00. In 2012 it was decided to outsource some of the activities. The Orgalime partnership received the order for collecting and assembling an overview of overall European developments. The latest update is available. 

Highlights of the 32-page information bulletin

Eurovent, together with over 100 association has called upon the European Commission for an overall coherent industrial policy. Notwithstanding support from industry and Member States the Commissioners still need to be convinced to act.

A first version of the Guide to the Radio Equipment Directive (RED) is expected in June. Even though many manufacturers believe their products would not be subject to the RED, it is recommended that this is checked and picked up within Eurovent Product Groups.

The US plans for a future corporate tax reform including a “border adjustment tax” would tax imports to the US by denying companies the right to deduct the cost of imported goods from their taxable profits. It would also exempt export revenue from company tax bases, in effect handing a rebate to US exporters. This overhaul is seen by EU trade lawyers as incompatible with current WTO rules and could potentially trigger the biggest case in WTO history.

The Maltese Presidency will prioritise the revisions of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and the Energy Efficiency Directive. The work on the EPBD could be swift, however it because of the current political climate would not push towards “more Europe” in these directives to avoid opposition from Member States.

The main changes are as usually highlighted in the legislative update.

Recommended Action

The Product Groups are asked to take note of the developments that concern them.
