EGMF represents manufacturers of garden, landscaping, forestry and turf maintenance equipment. The garden and outdoor power equipment industry represents a very wide variety of equipment, ranging from small hand-held machinery to large ride-on products. In addition, EGMF’s user base comprises both consumers and professionals.
The portfolio of EGMF equipment falls within the scope of numerous pieces of EU legislation, notably the Machinery Directive, Outdoor Noise Directive, Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive, all of which make use of the concept of harmonised European standards that provide a presumption of conformity to the respective EU legislation.
As such, we have responded to the European Standardisation Roadmap launched by the European Commission and shared EGMF’s experience and reflections on governance issues in the European Standardisation System.
