Machinery directive: Position paper still not published

At the beginning of November 2016, a committee instated by the European Commission set out to clear the ongoing discus-sion whether the machinery directive was relevant for valves. Their answer was a clear “yes”. A respective clarification paper was written by a sub-committee. Once published the paper would create legal certainty for all European valve manufac-turers. But its publication is being delayed and held back. EU-nited valves endorsed the publication of the position paper in a letter to the European Commission. We consider in this case legal certainty a highly valuable good.
