PROSAFE has further developed the principle of a home authority in the framework of a couple of Joint Market Surveillance Actions: JA2011 and JA2012.

Take a look at this special interactive presentation on the key principles to market surveillance, including the proposed European Home Authority Principle - EHAP.

The ‘Home-Authority’ Task Working Group was formed from JA2011 participants who were interested to participate to varying degrees in this particular subject matter. The following participating authorities from various Member States have all assisted to different degrees in developing this document:

  • Belgium – FPS Economy, SMEs, Self-Employed and Energy
