European Commission brief outcome consultation on market surveillance (GEN – 748.00)

02 February 2017

GEN – 748.00. The Commission received 239 contributions on its public consultation on market surveillance. These are presented as a tabled overview and a summary in a 110-page document.

The outcome can be summarised as:

  • Businesses, including Eurovent, were strongly represented in responding to the consultation and in terms of activity sectors, the representation is considered well balanced in all sectors
  • Most respondents consider that their products are affected by non-compliance with product requirements laid down in EU harmonisation legislation
  • As to the most important reason for product non-compliance respondents consider that it is about a deliberate choice to exploit market opportunities at the lowest cost, followed by a lack of knowledge
  • Many replies reveal that in most of the countries, budget and resources for market surveillance are recognised as by far not sufficient
  • Many respondents agree that market surveillance does not provide sufficient deterrence in their sector

The Commission website on market surveillance contains the action programmes by Member States. These tend to be of a general nature. Lately some market surveillance activities are carried out as collaborative efforts by a number Member States, introduced and funded under EU programmes.

In Germany, an authority was set up in 2014; Since short it has become operational and is looking at compliance with Ecodesign regulations, for example the fan regulation 327/2011.
