JA2014 - 112 Safety Barriers Are Tested  

Many parents are using safety barriers to keep their children away from the dangerous corners of the house. These products are not always compliant with the current regulations and there might be a risk of accidents, like falls, choking or even strangulation.
Officials from 12 EU countries, who are taking part to the Joint Action 2014 Activity on Safety Barriers, are currently investigating if these kind of products sold on the European market are compliant to the current standards. The market surveillance authorities are verifying 112 products. 

CIMS Review in Bulgaria – Another success story                     Oct.2016                                                                                     

The Directorate General responsible for Market Surveillance within the State Agency for Metrology and Technical Services (SAMTS) has hosted the first CIMS Review of JA2015 coordinated by PROSAFE on 4-5-6 October 2016.

The Task Leader, who is also representing the Maltese market surveillance authority, together with other participating authorities from Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Slovakia and The Netherlands took part in this CIMS Review. 

The cooperation, eagerness to share information and hospitality showed by the Bulgarian colleagues helped substantially to make this another success for PROSAFE.

The next CIMS will take place in The Netherlands and will be organized by NVWA, the Dutch market surveillance authority.
