We hosted a webinar on the EU Market Surveillance Regulation on Thursday, 20 May 2021. At the webinar, our speakers discussed the key points and practical considerations that need to be borne in mind by ‘economic operators’ getting ready for the various requirements in this legislation that will apply from 16 July 2021, and the enhanced market surveillance powers being introduced.
This new legislation forms part of the Goods Package and is designed to improve market surveillance of a variety of specific products covered by EU harmonised legislation. One of the main drivers of this legislation was a need to address challenges posed by the increasing popularity of e-commerce and online trade, and a corresponding need to provide for improved cross-border cooperation and accountability for non-EU manufacturers. Examples of products and chemicals covered include: medical devices, machinery, batteries, toys, fertilisers, detergents and cosmetics.
