Surveys close on November 25th

The European Commission, in coordination with Member States, has launched a public consultation on the semiconductor value chain. This consists of two surveys, one for suppliers and one for end users of semiconductors, which will remain open until November 25th.

The results of the consultation will be analysed and prepared by the European Commission in collaboration with the European Semiconductor Expert Group, in order to propose the best approach to the monitoring mechanism, which will include the identification of potential early warning indicators suitable for anticipating future failures in the semiconductor supply chain and preventing future crises.

Semiconductors are essential to the functioning of our economy and society. Over the years, the European Union has experienced unprecedented disruptions in supply that have resulted in serious delays and negative effects on important economic sectors, including delays in the repair and maintenance of essential products for critical sectors.

In response to this issue, on February 8th, 2022 the European Commission published a Recommendation effective immediately to enable rapid and coordinated monitoring of the European semiconductor value chain, focusing on risks that could disrupt, compromise or negatively affect their supply. This control aims to prepare and enable the permanent monitoring mechanism for this chain, proposed under the Chips Act.

Answers will be uploaded to the EU survey's secure platform to which only the European Commission has access, in an aggregated and anonymous manner. The confidentiality of the information and data obtained through these surveys will be respected.
