The Objective:

The Joint Action aims to raise the level of market surveillance in the product areas concerned, thereby contributing to a more uniform application of the rules set out in the applicable EU harmonised legislation.

JAHARP2020-1 was created in close collaboration with the respective four Administrative Cooperation (AdCo) groups to best target product and horizontal activities based on the current needs and requirements of their member authorities. These groups are:

  • The AdCo Gas Appliances Regulation (EU) 2016/426
  • The AdCo on Radio Equipment Directive (RED) 2014/53/EU
  • The AdCo Transportable Pressure Equipment (TPED) – Directive 2010/35/EU
  • The cross–cutting activity on a harmonised approach has also been welcomed by the AdCo Low Voltage – Directive (LVD) 2014/35/EU

The project is co-funded by the European Commission/DG GROW under the action “EU support to joint market surveillance actions for non-food products” and coordinated by PROSAFE.
