In 2010, the secretariat of WP.6 started to collect information on market surveillance authorities in the UNECE region and beyond, in partnership with the European Commission and the EuroAsian Interstate Council.* Currently, more than 30 countries have provided information about their market surveillance authorities.
WP 6 has received data from 40 countries, and we're currently working to consolidate the information received and make it available on the UNECE WP. 6 website. Download the survey in order to participate in this initiative.
