The Technical Inspection Division plans and executes the inspection of compliance with the regulations that determine the technical requirements for non-food products. In particular, the Division supervises compliance with regulations that determine the CE conformity marking, the regulations on eco-design and energy labelling of products, and regulations related to environmental protection. It carries out inspections of products and their safety for use, these including machinery, personal protective equipment and electrical equipment. The inspection of toys and cosmetics is carried out by other inspection bodies. The RAPEX national contact point is a part of the Division. The Rapid Alert System for Non-Food Consumer Products (RAPEX) is a system for rapidly exchanging information about hazardous products intended for consumers in the European Union (except food, medicinal drugs and medical devices, for which other information exchange systems exist).
