Press conference by Meglena Kuneva , Member of the EC on the 2006 Annual Report on Dangerous Consumer Products withdrawn from the EU Market

Meglena Kuneva, Member of the EC in charge of Consumer Protection, gave a press conference on the 2006 Annual Report on Dangerous Consumer Products. In total, restrictive measures concerning 924 dangerous products were reported through RAPEX last year, compared to 701 in 2005 - representing a 32% increase. Through RAPEX, the Rapid Alert System for non-food consumer products, national authorities notify the Commission of products presenting a serious risk for the health and safety of consumers, with the exception of food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. This information is rapidly shared among all other surveillance authorities in 30 European countries, and dangerous products are then banned or their sale is restricted on the market. The Commission is calling for enhanced participation from all EU Member States, joint efforts with and between national market surveillance and customs authorities, and co-operation with third countries to further increase the effectiveness of the system.
