RAPEX notifications and reactions (monthly reports)
A notification consists of information provided by Member States concerning measures or actions taken for products presenting risk to the public interests.
A reaction is information provided by Member States in response to a ‘validated’ notification. In reactions Member States inform the Commission whether the notified dangerous product was found also on their territories and which measures were taken to restrict its marketing and distribution.
Since its implementation, the number of notifications disseminated through RAPEX has grown significantly. This achievement is a result of shared efforts and efficient cooperation between all the national authorities and the European Commission.
