In a workshop in beginning of May in Warsaw, PROSAFE presented the progress achieved by the participants in the Joint Action 2013. The two-day meeting was attended by some 35 market surveillance officials and stakeholders. The workshop showed that sampling and testing is well on the way for all five product groups addressed by the Action. Preliminary test results already reveal that the market surveillance authorities have been able to pick the most risky products from the market in their work.
The Joint Market Surveillance Action 2013 (JA2013), which has been running for nearly 1½ year, is an umbrella project that brings together 25 authorities from 21 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In addition, authorities from Turkey and Bosnia-Herzegovina take part in some of the activities as observers outside the financial scheme.
