Brussels, 19 December 2017

S&D Euro MPs today welcomed the Commission’s legislative proposals to make it easier for companies, especially SMEs, to sell their products across Europe, and to strengthen controls by national authorities and customs officers to prevent unsafe products from being sold to European consumers.

S&D Group spokesperson for the internal market and consumer protection Nicola Danti said:

“Safety of consumers and effective market surveillance rules on the products sold in the Internal Market have always been a key-priority for us. In the next months, the S&D Group will work hard to ensure the new legislation proposed will help to create a fairer and safer internal market for goods. After recent scandals, it is essential to rebuild consumer´s trust in the common Market.”
