The General Product Safety Directive sets up a system for rapid exchange of information (RAPEX) concerning products posing a serious risk to consumers. The implementation of Rapex in the EU, allows officials in one country to report a dangerous product, the alert then goes out to all 27 EU member states. The rapid alert system is for all dangerous consumer products, with the exception of food, pharmaceutical and medical devices.
Third party testing can ensure that products are fit for purpose when placed on the market to avoid the need for product recalls!
