The aim of this study is to analyse the cumulative regulatory costs of the most relevant EU legislation for the EU ceramics and glass industries.
The ceramics and glass industries face challenges to their competitiveness such as the cost and availability of inputs (raw materials or energy); environmental, health and safety regulations; and competition from third country producers.
This study will identify and quantify costs, both direct and indirect, which specifically affect the industries. The EU legislation to be analysed includes ceramics and glass legislation, legislation on climate change, environmental protection, energy, competition, trade, consumer and health protection, as well as workers safety legislation. The analysis will include the implementation of EU directives.
