6th MARS Group meeting

2 - 4 October 2008

Bratislava, Slovakia

Governments face the challenge of a ensuring that products on their national markets are safe. Yet, they have scarce resources to devote to controls, and the products on the market are ever more complex and diverse. Globalization means that no market can be secured in isolation. We then need a shared vision for market surveillance and enforcement of technical regulations. The MARS group met in Bratislava, Slovakia - at the kind invitation of the Slovak Office of Standards, Metrology and Testing - to discuss a new and original model, the "General Market Surveillance Procedure" which intends to provide guidance to market surveillance authorities in the planning and execution of market surveillance actions. Participants also learned about how the "New legislative framework of the European Union" aims at curbing the proliferation of unsafe and counterfeit products on the markets of EU Member States and the ensuing distortion of competition.
