89 views

On 25 March 2014, Neven Mimica, Member of the EC in charge of Consumer Policy, gave a press conference on the 10th annual report of the results of the European rapid alert system for dangerous products (RAPEX). For 10 years the EU Rapid Information system (RAPEX) had been guarding European consumers against un-safe non-food products. In 2013 a total of 2,364 measures were taken by EU Member States. This figure indicated a 3.8% rise in alerts compared to 2012 and continued the increasing trend which had been apparent since the establishment of RAPEX in 2003. In 2013, clothing, textiles and fashion items and toys (both 25%), were the two main product categories for which corrective measures had to be taken. Among the most frequently notified risks caused by these products were chemical risks, risk of strangulation, risk of injury and choking.
