On 26 September, the European Commission revealed the winners of the inaugural EU Product Safety Award, which in its 2019 edition recognised businesses, both big and small, that excel in the safety of childcare products.

In the afternoon, the winners shared their best practices with their industry peers and product safety experts at a networking workshop.

At a gala evening in Brussels, European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality Věra Jourová presented awards to four SMEs and four large companies from Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Greece, Italy and the Netherlands. The ceremony was attended by key figures from the EU Institutions, consumer organisations and the international media.
