10 Art 4 final


The objective of this project is to support the efficient implementation of Article 4 of Regulation 2019/1020 on market surveillance. The intent is to create measurable, verifiable and sustainable impact from knowledge-sharing and convergence among MSAs and economic operators in relation to Article 4 of Regulation (EU) 2019/1020, in the most cost-effective/efficient way. Furthermore, the scope is to create multiplier effects through the dissemination of the project findings beyond its lifecycle, and via the replication or extrapolation of methods, lessons-learnt and good practices to future national and EU product market surveillance campaigns.


The main objectives of this project are summarised as follows:

  • Identifying barriers, success stories and good practices, and develop pragmatic approaches among MSAs with regards to the application of Article 4 of Regulation (EU) 2019/1020;
  • Raising awareness among economic operators (as defined in Regulation (EU) 2019/1020) and other stakeholders about the problems identified;
  • Increasing the profile of EU market surveillance in general;
  • Presenting transformative pragmatic/feasible policy and non-policy recommendations driven by the results of our activities to support the European Commission and MSAs in addressing uniformly and effectively common and emerging challenges in non-food products market surveillance pertaining to Regulation (EU) 2019/1020.
