Consumer Safety

Consumer Safety

The European Union has successfully created an internal market with free circulation of goods and services for the benefit of consumers, among others. To enable consumers anywhere in the EU to buy safe products and services under clear conditions and with no hidden surprises, the EU has adopted a legal framework for consumer policy. The legislative and other measures are intended to promote the interests, health and safety of consumers in the internal market,  ensure consumer concerns are taken properly into account in all EU policies and complement national consumer policy in the Member States.
