The EU Product Compliance Network (EUPCN) aims to structure the coordination and cooperation between market surveillance authorities in EU countries, and streamline market surveillance practices within the EU that facilitate the implementation of joint enforcement activities by member state authorities, such as joint investigations.
The network's administrative support structure allows the pooling of resources and maintains a communication and information system between EU countries, helping to strengthen the enforcement of EU harmonisation legislation on products and deter infringements.
The EUPCN was established by the Market Surveillance Regulation (EU) 2019/1020.
See the agendas and minutes of EU Product Compliance Network meetings.
The network is composed of representatives from each EU country, including a representative of each single liaison office and an optional national expert, the chairs of the Administrative Cooperation Groups ('ADCOs'), and representatives from the European Commission.
