Visit of Tonio Borg of an exhibition on product safety

134 views

On 16 May 2013, Tonio Borg, Member of the EC in charge of Health and Consumer Policy, visited the exhibition on product safety following the press conference on the key findings of the 2012 RAPEX annual report. In 2012, a total of 2,278 measures against dangerous non-food products, were taken by Member States and reported in the EU Rapid Information system (RAPEX). This indicates a 26% rise in alerts when compared to 2011 figures, an increase that could be attributed to the improved enforcement work carried out by the authorities in EU countries. RAPEX is the EU rapid alert system between Member States and the Commission on non-food products. Its role is to disseminate information quickly on potentially dangerous consumer products. This allows for earlier identification and earlier removal from EU markets of products that could pose a risk to consumers, such as children's clothing, textiles and electrical appliances which do not meet safety standards.
