Commissioner Kuneva presents a "soft contract" for ANEC
Commissioner Meglena Kuneva After delivering her keynote address to ANEC's 18th General Assembly meeting, Mrs Meglena Kuneva, Member of the European Commission responsible for Consumer Policy, handed her speech to the ANEC President and declared that it represented her "soft contract" with ANEC, and, through ANEC, with European consumers.
In her speech, the Commissioner confirmed the need to support ANEC from public funds in order to provide consumers with an independent and authoritative voice at European level. In the extension of the 'digital world' to ever more aspects of daily life, the importance of promoting and defending consumer interests became ever more evident. Mrs Kuneva therefore welcomed the decision of the Council and Parliament to secure the funding of ANEC through the Consumer Programme 2007 to 2013.
On the issue of the revision of the "New Approach", the Commissioner thanked ANEC for its participation in the public consultation and its response to the Commission proposal. She accepted ANEC's assertion that the New Approach should not be considered the only 'approach' in the harmonisation of laws for products and services. She also touched upon the safety of services, and the role of standards should play in this regard. Finally, Mrs Kuneva welcomed the continued commitment of ANEC and its experts to represent consumer interests in European standardisation, noting that the Commission considers standardisation to be a cornerstone of 'better regulation' in EU policy making.
The keynote address was made by Commissioner Meglena Kuneva (see cover).
