VNR: Keeping European Consumers Safe - RAPEX (short version)
EU’s Rapid Alert System (RAPEX) instrumental in ensuring increasing number of unsafe products are removed from the market
Within an increasingly consumer-driven society, where the single market allows free movement of goods, RAPEX helps to stop dangerous products, from reaching the buying public in 30 European countries. Through the system, national authorities notify the Commission of products which present a serious risk, such as electric shocks, choking and burns, to consumers. RAPEX immediately launches a process to inform and warn authorities in other countries where the product is sold so that they can take immediate appropriate action.
