Nikolaj Villumsen MEP, Opening Speaker

Member of the European Parliament

Nikolaj was the Rapporteur on the legislative initiative report on protecting workers from the European Parliament, which was adopted in the end of last year. Now he is leading the work on making the report a reality and to put pressure on the European Commission, which will present its proposal after summer.

The importance of Nikolaj’s work is not to be underestimated: combining an ambitious vision with the latest in asbestos related science, technology and innovations, his asbestos resolution, voted for with an overwhelming majority, will be the basis of a new EU Asbestos Directive, with far reaching effects for EU Member States as well as high relevance for the rest of the world.
