Mid-term newsletter from the Joint Action 2016

The preliminary results of the Joint Market Surveillance Action on Consumer Products 2016 (JA2016) are now out and the overview of findings can be reviewed on the latest published Newsletter.

31 Market Surveillance Authorities from 24 European countries work jointly on consolidating and enhancing product safety through effective market surveillance across the European Economic Area (EEA). The project features a number of product-specific and capacity-building (“Method Development”) activities that support market surveillance in identifying and removing dangerous products from the Single Market. The first results demonstrate the achievements of the project to the benefit of the European consumer through the assessment of the risks associated with unsafe products and the enforcement measures taken by the participating authorities, e.g. removal from the market.
