1.        Background

This proposed Regulation is primarily aimed to address the increasing amount of non-compliant products on the Union’s market while ensureing a level playing field for businesses established within and outside the EU. 

This initiative will be implemented through:
  • reinforced enforcement on products by intensifying compliance checks through a strengthened framework for controls on products entering the Union’s market;
  • improved cooperation between market surveillance authorities and customs authorities;
  • introduction of a necessary condition for making products available on the market – a person responsible for compliance information shall be established within the Union;
  • incentives to boost regulatory compliance;

In order to achieve these objectives, market surveillance authorities are set to receive a set of powers allowing them to effectively enforce the Union harmonisation legislation on products. In particular, a Union Product Compliance Network, with the main task will be that of coordinating enforcement across the Union, shall be established. With the new powers that are being established through this proposal for a regulation, cooperation across borders between market surveillance authorities and with that of customs authorities is set to increase. This shall result in a more effective control on products entering the Union’s market.
