The European Commission (EC) has proposed a regulation that lays down rules and procedures for the compliance with and enforcement of EU harmonized legislation on products.
This Regulation establishes a framework for cooperation with economic operators in relation to products covered in this document. It also provides a framework for the market surveillance of such products to ensure that those products fulfil requirements providing a high level of protection of public interests such as health and safety in general, health and safety in the workplace, the protection of consumers, protection of the environment and security.
This Regulation also provides a framework for controls on such products entering the Union market.
EC is accepting public comments on this proposal until May 17, 2018.
