|The objective of the project is to support measurement and testing (M&T) laboratories and related infrastructures in Newly Associated States (NAS) for full implementation of the Low-voltage Directive (LVD). Equally important is to enhance their interrelations with regulatory and administrative bodies and with related industries. These, so called "institutional triangles", will be created on national levels and will be the key players in the project. Particular emphasis of the project is to enable and facilitate mutual recognition agreements and the ability for competitiveness. The aim is to prepare M&T laboratories and industries in NAS for their future role in the enlarged single market. Project highlights technical and economic development in the NAS members and relates to their trade patterns in order to enhance their long-term macroeconomic growth.
