Consumer safety


Strict common safety standards applied to the products and services circulating within the internal market are vital to safeguarding consumer health.
The European Union has laid down general safety rules applicable to services, foodstuffs and non-food products, to be observed by producers and suppliers of these products and services. These rules relate to monitoring and warning instruments designed to analyse and prevent risks, and to remedy dangerous situations. Specific provisions have also been drawn up for certain products whose composition, manufacture or use may pose a risk to consumers.
