The main activity revolved around the development of a review system amongst market surveillance authorities which has been called CIMS (Continuous Improvement in Market Surveillance), including the development of a guidance document on CIMS which acts as a basic framework for such activities.
Additionally, support was given to the Commission’s working group on the Consumer Market Scoreboard. This took the form of direct participation by TASK F participants in that working group as well as giving input from TASK F to the Commission via the GPSD Committee Meeting.
The majority of Task G’s activities were undertaken at the European level. These included background research analysing the results of a questionnaire circulated to the Member States authorities. Work was then undertaken on identifying the scope of coordination activities that could be encouraged. A protocol was developed to help ensure adequate liaison between market surveillance activities and standards development. Lastly an inventory was drawn up of standards ad standards projects of interest to market surveillance officials.
