A high level of consumer protection must be secured by taking measures to ensure that only safe products are provided on the market to consumers. Products in the European Union’s single market must meet high safety criteria, a large number of product standards and technical requirements, and environmental protection requirements. Obligations for manufacturers and distributors are laid down with regard to product safety, as well as the rapid exchange of information and the measures to be taken at EU level. This ensures not only that consumers are protected, but also that unfair competition is eliminated and a competitive advantage created.
