EU Commission publishes weekly notifications of unsafe products

In an effort to provide more timely information regarding unsafe products within the European Union (EU), the EU Commission is now making public its weekly reports of unsafe products that have been processed through the EU’s rapid information system (RAPEX).

Each “Weekly Overview Report of RAPEX Notifications” contains detailed information about each unsafe product reported, the specific danger the unsafe product poses to consumers, the name of the EU member state which submitted the notification to the RAPEX system, and the action taken by the notifying member state.

At present, there is no subscription option available for those who would like to automatically receive copies of the Weekly Overview Reports by e-mail.  An archive of weekly reports of RAPEX notifications back to 2004 is available.
