Joint press conference by Antonio Tajani and Tonio Borg on Strengthening market surveillance for safer products and growth

0 views

On 13 February 2013, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, gave a press conference at the European Commission, in Brussels to present new rules to strengthening market surveillance for safer products and growth. The European Commission proposed new rules to improve the safety of consumer products circulating in the Single Market and to step-up market surveillance concerning all non-food products, including those imported from 3rd countries. This will contribute both to strengthening consumer protection and to creating a level playing field for businesses. Unsafe products should not reach consumers or other users and their improved identification and traceability will be a key improvement that will help to take them quickly out of the market. Once adopted by the European Parliament and by the Council the new rules will be enforced by the national market surveillance authorities in the Member States.
