RAPEX - EU rapid alert system for consumer protection

The Rapid Alert System for non-food dangerous products (RAPEX) allowed the 31 participating countries (EU countries, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) and the European Commission, exchanges

  • information on products which are a danger to the health and safety of consumers and
  • on measures such as return or recall actions taken by these countries.

As the next examples show, it is worth looking at the RAPEX weekly updated list.
