Intergraf influences European legislation which affects the printing industry. To do this, Intergraf deals with the European Commission, the European Parliament and the statistics office, Eurostat.The printing industry is affected by several different Directorates General (DGs) at the European Commission including: Enterprise, Environment and Trade.
Intergraf voices the concerns of the printing industry through regular direct contact with Commission officials of these DGs through letters and position papers. When appropriate, it collaborates with other industries.Intergraf’s objective towards the European Commission is to scrutinise planned legislation which could have an impact on the sector's competitiveness. If an impact is anticipated, Intergraf consults its members and agrees on a consensus position.
Through this direct European connection and continuous feedback from members Intergraf is able to effectively represent and promote the industry at large in Europe.
