Following its bulletins of 5 May 2021 updating the New Industrial Strategy proposed in 2020, the European Commission has additional indicated that it’ll rely quite heavily on trade to ship on the main challenges faced by our economies and societies in Europe. This is particularly the case in relation to sustainability, digital transformation, and global competitiveness, in addition to the want to overcome the crisis provoked by the Covid-19 pandemic. The EU Recovery and Resilience Plan launched in Spring 2021 is essentially building on the potential of European trade to design and produce the constructing blocks of the twin green and digital transition. At the identical time, the EU is shaping a dense regulatory framework that does not all the time help the freedom and suppleness needed for corporations to grow and compete globally.
เครื่องมือวัดความดันคือ , and in particular our pumps, compressors, taps and valves sectors, have for a very lengthy time thought of the enhancement of their world competitiveness throughout the challenges of societal and environmental challenges, notably by contributing to the preparation of vitality effectivity and ecolabel regulations. In parallel, digitalisation has provided elevated opportunities and brought new challenges, together with debates on the suitable regulatory degree (sharing of commercial data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, etc).
These developments, amidst ever more fierce worldwide competitors, require that public authorities and trade in the EU work more and more extra intently to design and deploy strategies that reinforce our competitiveness and our contribution to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Specific Technical and Policy Issues

It subsequently falls to sector particular trade organisations, such as Europump, CEIR and Pneurop, to determine and advise on those technical and policy points most related to their respective sectors. In our particular enviornment, that relates, in fact, to the manufacture, distribution and use of pumps and all pump related gear – a huge and important subset of industry, given the width and breadth of pump purposes.
Against this backdrop, one of the primary considerations when determining the core themes for the joint convention was to take care of a direct reference to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Within this focus, the three associations intend to spotlight how, along with the importance for companies to deal with technical elements impacting their every day enterprise operations, they consider the optimistic position of trade in addressing societal challenges. Indeed, all the sessions will have a technical theme matching the most applicable UN SDG, and with representation from the European Commission together with technical consultants from trade and/or research institutes, they may each be reflective of the present legislative terrain, as it pertains to pumps and pumping techniques in the following key areas:
Circular Economy & Eco-design (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 12: Responsible Consumption and Production)
Industry’s Digital Transformation and Innovation (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 9: Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure)
The restriction of use of materials and substances of concern (Relevant UN Sustainable Development Goal no. 6: Clean Water and Sanitation)
The regulatory and legislative landscape across Europe is turning into more and more complicated, and industry, in all its guises, must be conscious and prepared for what is coming. By partaking with those trade organisations that characterize your greatest pursuits, you possibly can keep abreast of all of the compliance developments as they have an effect on your small business and the areas by which you operate.
