Assessing the functioning of market surveillance

Under the Accreditation and Market Surveillance Regulation of the EU, Member States must review and assess the functioning of market surveillance on a regular basis. The reviews and assessments must be carried out at least every fourth year and the results must be communicated to the other Member States and the Commission and be made available to the public by way of electronic communication.

Finland’s report for the period 2010-2013 covers a general review of market surveillance and 29 different product groups. The focus in the review and assessment has been on product groups coming under the harmonisation legislation of the European Union. The assessment has been carried out in accordance with the model prepared by the Commission.

Annex 1 to the document lists the sectors covered by the report. The sectoral assessments have been prepared by the market surveillance authorities responsible for the sectors.
