Joint Action on Lighters Final Conference - Presenting results obtained after almost 5½ years of dedicated work
Since September 2007 PROSAFE and its members have undertaken joint market surveillance activities on lighters. The purpose has been to check whether only lighters that are safe and child-resistant are placed on the market and to improve collaboration among market surveillance authorities across the EU. The activities involved 17 EU and EEA Member States in two Joint Actions, and additional 12 countries associated on their own to the Actions. Both Joint Actions were co-funded by the European Union.
