AMDEA works with its members on proposed  Government regulations affecting the appliance industry  to ensure that  they are  proportionate and effective.

Product legislation is typically set at EU level and then transposed into UK law. AMDEA focuses on legislation related to safety, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and environmental protection.  Of these, the laws to protect the environment cover energy consumption, chemical use and end of life arrangements.

Standards cover all aspects of modern day life, but AMDEA focuses on those supporting European legislative requirements, such as safety, EMC, environment and performance.

AMDEA is also active in discussions on market surveillance policy and enforcement.  Each EU Member State is responsible for these in its own territory. AMDEA maintains strong links with the relevant UK Government Departments who have both legal and civil measures at their disposal.

The following are a selection of recent consultation responses on key policy issues:
