Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 on market surveillance and compliance of products strengthens and modernises market surveillance of non-food products in order to protect citizens from unsafe and non-compliant products and to provide a level playing field for economic operators.
Article 4 of the regulation specifies that, for certain product categories, there should be an economic operator in the EU that can provide information to, and cooperate with the market surveillance authorities.
The regulation requires the European Commission to draw up guidelines for the practical implementation of Article 4 for the purposes of market surveillance authorities and economic operators.
