Position paper - Strengthening compliance and enforcement in the Single Market

All Committees
Consumer affairs

The American Chamber of Commerce to the European Union (AmCham EU) supports and shares the objectives of the Commission’s proposal to improve compliance and enforcement of Union harmonisation legislation. However, we hold reservations about the extent to which this proposal introduces disproportionate new burdens for reputable companies who, operating in good faith, already make significant efforts to ensure their products are compliant with relevant legislation. A risk-based and proportionate approach targeting rogue traders would be more appropriate.
