Three Leading European Associations Plan Shared ‘Get-To-Know-Each-Other’ Webinar

Scheduled for the afternoon of Tuesday 25th May, from 14.00-16.30 CEST, this free to attend online gathering replaces the ‘live’ Annual Meetings and Joint Conference, which, CEIR, Europump and PNEUROP were scheduled to hold this May in Brussels.

The ongoing challenges brought about by the pandemic has understandable curtailed the original plans, but keen to provide the opportunity for members of each association to become acquainted with the others, and to gain a useful understanding of their respective priorities, common issues, and opportunities for cooperation, the joint webinar was conceived.

Delivered through a panel discussion with the three Association Presidents, the format of this aspect of the event will provide free-flowing conversation with a range of topics being addressed, considered, and debated.

In addition, the Orgalim Partnership Team will deliver an update on the latest EU regulatory landscape, which will affect members of all three associations, over the coming months and years.

The event, operated on the Zoom platform, and open to all interested parties – members and non-members alike – will offer a comprehensive overview on the taps & valves (CEIR), the pumps (Europump) and the compressors (Pneurop) European industry associations, along with their current and future activities!

14:00 - 15:00
Panel Discussion: Carlos Velazquez (President, CEIR), Sönke Brodersen (President, Europump) and Jouko Peussa (President, Pneurop) discuss the association’s main activities, perspectives, and ambitions, notably in relation to interacting with the European Union institutions.  The session will be moderated by Yvonne Orgill, UWLA Managing Director.

15:00 - 15:45
Orgalim Partnership Update: The team detail the most recent EU regulatory developments - Internal Market including the Machinery Directive, Substances including the RoHS Directive, Circular Economy including the revision of the Eco-design Directive, and Digitisation with the new AI Regulation proposal.

15:45 - 16:30
Networking, Summations and Conclusions: Informal get-together for participants to virtually mingle and review the information presented.
