Market supervision

Area of expertise

To guarantee compliance of products subject to the free movement of goods in the EU with the requirements for protecting public interests, such as general health and safety, consumer protection, etc., legislation has been implemented at EU and national levels to set out the terms of market supervision and, in particular, the rules of conformity assessment, market supervision, inspection of products from third countries and CE marking.

Lack of compliance with the applicable law may lead to consequences as drastic as being ordered to recall a product, discontinue its use, and/or being fined.

The name of a product that does not conform to the requirements will listed in the publicly available Register of Non-Conforming or Potentially Hazardous Products, which is maintained by the President of the Office of the UOKiK.
