Rapex Weekly Report: Week 52, 2006
DG Health and Consumers
RAPEX is the EU rapid alert system for all dangerous consumer products, with the exception of food, pharmaceutical and medical products. It allows for the rapid exchange of information between Member States and the Commission with regard to items posing a potential serious risk to the health and safety of consumers and measures taken by Member States to prevent, restrict or impose specific conditions on the marketing of these products. The revised General Product Safety Directive, which entered into force in January 2004, requires the Commission to make information relating to risks to consumer health and safety posed by products available to the public. This is why the Commission publishes a weekly overview of notifications of dangerous products.
This week’s RAPEX report consists of 20 items: 3 household appliances, 3 motor vehicles, 2 lighting equipment, 2 toys, 2 clothing, 2 heating appliances, 1 electrical appliance, 1 lighter, 1 childcare article, 1 children’s equipment, 1 garden furniture and 1 hobby/sport equipment.
