AMDEA works with and on behalf of our members on proposed Government regulations affecting the appliance industry to ensure that they are proportionate and effective and work for business and end users.
Product legislation has typically been set at EU level and then transposed into UK law. Going forward, in the UK, we can expect to see a mix of EU regulation transposed into UK law and specific UK developed regulation that diverges from EU requirements. AMDEA focuses on legislation related to safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and environmental protection. Of these, the laws to protect the environment cover energy consumption, chemical use and end of life arrangements.
Standards cover all aspects of modern-day life, but AMDEA focuses on those supporting European legislative requirements, such as safety, EMC, environment and performance.
AMDEA is also active in discussions on market surveillance policy and enforcement. Each EU Member State is responsible for these in its own territory. AMDEA maintains strong links with the relevant UK Government Departments who have both legal and civil measures at their disposal.
