Product Safety (Regulation)

The European Commission has proposed a "Product Safety and Market Surveillance Package" containing, in particular, a proposal for a Regulation on consumer product safety and a proposal for a Regulation on the regulatory market surveillance of products. The proposal for a Regulation on product safety aims to simplify the different rules on consumer product safety as well as ensuring that consumer products are safe.


The simplification of legislation on consumer product safety does increase legal certainty. However, the mandatory indication of the country of origin is not reasonable for the traceability of a product.
