Proposal for new EU Machinery legislation leads to uncertainty in the industry

BRUSSELS, Belgium – “The recent proposal of European Commission for a new EU Machinery Legislation creates uncertainty in the bicycle industry,” states the Confederation of the European Bicycle Industry (CONEBI). The European Commission proposes to exclude all ‘vehicles which have as their only objective the transport of goods or persons’ from the scope of the new legislation.
For CONEBI, “the EU Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC is a key legislation for the EU bicycle industry.” – Photo Rotwild
