Proceedings of the Workshop on "The Product Safety and Market Surveillance Package"

04-09-2013

The Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection requested the organisation of a workshop on the Product Safety and Market Surveillance package with the aim to acquire independent technical expertise on selected aspects of the two legislative proposals currently discussed in Parliament. In addition to an overview of the US practices and regulations on market surveillance and product safety, the speakers presented best practices on how to maximise market surveillance with limited budget and the problems market surveillance authorities still face in practice. Experts also presented their views on the product safety proposal for regulation, from a legal and technical point of view.
