ECIPE Webinar: Combating Dangerous Goods – How Should Europe Improve its Product Safety Notifications?

September 20 2021
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Andre Berends, William Echikson, Jeremy Opperer, Katrien Vekeman
Time: 15:00

Join us for a discussion on how to improve Europe’s Safety Gate alerts

Europe is debating how best to ensure that dangerous products are not sold to consumers. The European Commission has just proposed a revamp of its product safety rules that would require retailers to ensure that dangerous products on their sites are removed within two working days.

In order to meet this deadline, retailers require quick, accurate and detailed notifications of unsafe products from authorities. A recent ECIPE study shows that Europe needs to make improvements in its Safety Gate system. Compared to their American and Australian counters, many European notifications of dangerous products lack the needed information to locate and remove them from the market.

How can the various actors – marketplaces, regulators and consumers – work together to keep consumers safe?
