Consumer Product Safety Reporting in the EU – What Manufacturers Need to Know


Consumer Product Safety Reporting in the EU – What Manufacturers Need to Know
September, 2017

This webinar gives an overview of the EU General Product Safety Directive (GPSD), and the specific notification requirements for producers selling products on the EU market, regardless of whether they are based in or outside the EU. The presentation gives a brief overview of RAPEX – the EU Rapid Alert System for non-food dangerous products – and review some examples of reportable incidents previously notified. It also addresses the notification procedure (by who? to whom? how? when?) and touches upon penalties for breach of the regulatory requirements.

Finally, it briefly looks at the Draft Product Safety and Market Surveillance Package which proposes to repeal the GPSD.
