European legislation ensures a consistent, high level of protection for the health and safety of consumers. Products placed on the market in the internal market are subject to general safety requirements. The European Union (EU) has introduced a rapid alert system (RAPEX) for products which pose a serious risk to consumers. Data is rapidly exchanged and published on measures taken to prevent or restrict the marketing or use of non-food, non-pharmaceutical or non-medical products or devices, which pose a serious risk to different public interests.
