Product safety improved in nine industry sectors

 Nine new EU directives are in place ensuring better product safety for a wide variety of products. The sectors concerned are electrical and electronic products, lifts, measuring instruments, civil explosives, pyrotechnic articles and equipment for use in potentially explosive atmospheres.

With these directives, market surveillance and customs officers will be in a better position to check the safety of products using more effective tools. In addition, Member States can improve the supervision of monitoring bodies that check the conformity of products with EU law, for example ensuring that the CE marking has been properly applied by manufacturers. In future, producers, importers and distributors will profit from uniform trading conditions. At the same time this process will further improve the safety of products on sale in the EU and make it easier to keep
non-compliant products off the market. This will lead to increased consumer trust and reductions in administrative burden and costs:
