First newsletter from the Joint Action 2016
The Joint Market Surveillance Action on Consumer Products 2016 (JA2016) was officially launched on 1 September 2017.
PROSAFE continues to build on the success of ten years of Joint Actions. In the coming two years, 32 market surveillance authorities from 25 EU Member States or EEA countries will identify and remove non-compliant products in six product categories: baby carriers, cots, electrical toys,
electrical appliances for haircare, impact drills and climbing equipment.
The Joint Action 2016 aims to protect consumers by identifying and removing unsafe products from the European market, to create equal terms and a "level playing field" for business and to support and increase the free flow of goods on the European market.
