AMDEA welcomed two government announcements on Wednesday 2 August: the indefinite extension of recognition of CE marking and the launch of the Product Safety Review consultation

AMDEA CEO Paul Hide said: “The indefinite extension of the CE mark gives appliance manufacturers much needed confidence in planning for the future as well as helping avoid unnecessary cost burdens and duplication. The long awaited Product Safety Review is needed to ensure regulation meets the changing product and channel landscapes, in particular to protect the rising number of shoppers purchasing from online market places.

Mr Hide added a call to urge government departments to synchronise their work to support industries, such as the UK appliance sector, to prosper in a harmonized post-EU member world.
