ORGALIME - The European Engineering Industries Association
Philippe Portalier coordinates the Orgalime advocacy on the Union technical harmonisation legislation, risk assessment, standardisation and conformity assessment of relevance to the industry in the electrical, electronic, mechanical and metalworking sectors. This led him to work on the three Goods Packages of 2007, 2013 and 2017, the alignment of EU harmonisation legislation with the New Legislative Framework (NLF) for the marketing of industrial products (2014-2016). Since 2001, Philippe Portalier represents Orgalime in PROSAFE stakeholder workshops. Before joining Orgalime in 1998, he worked for 12 years for various public and private organisations in France, including the European Commission (in the former Parisian info-centre “Sources d’Europe”) and the household appliance maker “Groupe Brandt”. Philippe holds a Bachelor in EU Legal Affairs from the Sorbonne University (Paris, 1986) and in Industrial Property Law (1985). Orgalime members in the UK are: BEAMA (Federation of British Electrotechnical and Allied Manufacturers – Associations Ltd), EAMA (Engineering and Machinery Alliance) and GAMBICA (Association for Instrumentation, Control, Automation and Laboratory Technology).
