Market Surveillance in Europe - Industry Call for Action - January 2015

Market Surveillance in Europe - Industry Call for Action - January 2015

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

Market surveillance is essential in ensuring that products on the EU market are compliant with existing legislation. Not only is this key to avoiding distortions of the market, market surveillance also aims at protecting consumers from fraudulent products. Lastly, only by complying with legislation, policy goals such as climate and energy efficiency objectives can be met in reality.

Market Surveillance in the EU can still be improved in some areas for a number of reasons, including lack of awareness, enforcement, testing and resources.
The industry would consequently like to set out its call for action in order to strengthen market surveillance by focusing on the following three areas:

1. Strengthening the pan-EU cooperation in market surveillance

2. Intensifying cooperation among national market surveillance authorities

3. Increasingly involving industry in market surveillance activities
