The objective of this action is to support and encourage more and better market surveillance across borders within the EU.
The objective of the call is to implement Actions 9 and 11 of the Communication of the Commission '20 actions for safer and compliant products for Europe: a multi-annual action plan for the surveillance of products in the EU' [COM(2013)76] .
Action 9 concerns joint enforcement activities to which the Commission will provide financial support, 'allowing market surveillance authorities and customs to pool resources and expertise and to apply SME-friendly methods. The main objective of this initiative is to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the surveillance system in Europe, as well as to improve the coordination of the practical enforcement work carried out in relation to product categories or other priorities.'
Action 11 concerns the financial support towards the administrative functioning of most of 'Administrative Cooperation groups' (ADCOs) so that the administrative burden of the organisation of these meetings can be reduced. The focus is on the ‘financial support for the travel costs of market surveillance authorities that wish to attend the meetings of the selected groups’.
Therefore, the Commission wants to support and encourage more and better market surveillance across borders within the EU, by financing joint market surveillance actions and other projects that contribute to a more efficient and effective market surveillance for products within the internal market and by facilitating Member States’ participation in the ADCOs.
