European sales law must be restricted to consumer agreements
23.02.2018 The EU is working on a uniform European sales law, but the mechanical engineering industry will probably remain largely unaffected.
VDMA’s office in Brussels bridges the gap between business and politics. The association informs its member companies about political developments that affect mechanical engineering. For policymakers in Brussels, the European Office (EurO) is a reliable point of contact with in-depth knowledge about the mechanical engineering industry to ensure that lawmaking does not happen in isolation from the real world in which companies operate.
