On October 14th, a webinar was held on the new European product safety regulation proposal and its impact on counterfeit children’s products, one of the main topics of the European CounterRisk project.
The event provided an insight into the guidelines on children’s product safety that the European Commission is working on.
The new regulatory proposal, which will supersede the current general product safety directive, addresses the challenge of e-commerce in the EU market, the control of products in the online market and new risks associated with connected products, among others. It also establishes new obligations for the different economic operators, taking into account operators that have emerged as a result of new online business models.
This webinar is part of the European Erasmus Days 2021 initiative whose main objective is to increase the dissemination and impact of Erasmus+ projects and common European values. In this edition of Erasmus days, more than 5,000 events took place across the EU.
The webinar addressed to staff of companies in the children’s products sector, consumer associations and consumer administration was rated as very satisfactory in terms of topics of interest and application in the professional field by more than 95% of the participants. We would like to thank the participants for their attendance and contributions in areas of knowledge needed by all actors involved in the safety of children’s products.
