Press Release - Europump Supports Joint Industry Statement on MPD

Oct 5, 2021

The Machinery Directive is unquestionably the single most important piece of legislation for the European manufacturing industry. Since its original publication in 1989, and subsequent revisions up to 2006, it has effectively provided the highest level of machinery safety in the world, successfully supported the Internal Market as well as EU competitiveness, and continuously enabled the industry to innovate and thrive. In this context, it is important that the future legislative framework retains the balance between safety and innovation whilst offering the necessary consistency for manufacturers and users alike.

To this end, Europump, along with seventeen other Trade Associations – the co-signatories - have recently produced and issued a joint statement detailing their collective position in relation to five key areas.
