ANEC welcomes the Resolution of the European Parliament on the Revision of the GPSD & Market Surveillance


08 Mar 2011


Health & Consumers

Stephen Russell, ANEC Secretary-General, commented: “We applaud the Parliament’s call for a European framework to be created in order to strengthen market surveillance activities across the Member States. We also very much welcome its call for the more rapid withdrawal of unsafe products from the market. We ask the Commission to reflect these recommendations in its proposal for a revised General Product Safety Directive. In order to protect the most vulnerable consumers, we also urge the Commission to set a common approach for the market surveillance of child appealing products”. 

More background information can be found in the joint ANEC-BEUC public statement.
