Consumer safety is one of the highest priorities of the European Commission, especially with the globalisation of supply chains and the constant evolution of the markets. The EU works closely with different stakeholders, including its main trading partners to ensure safety, no matter where the product is produced.


This year, again, the Commission is hosting the International Product Safety Week in Brussels.


A series of events will gather non-food, consumer product safety professionals and stakeholders from around the globe, representing regulators, industry, consumer organisations, standard-makers and test laboratories to work together in advancing product safety issues globally.
