The risk assessment in accordance with the implementation decision (EU) 2019/417, addressed to the EU member states, represents a guideline of the EU Commission. It is also a suitable instrument in the field of product compliance crisis management, which economic actors who are responsible for the product should think about and consider actions before and issue occurs.
Authorities are obliged to prepare a RAPEX risk assessment at the latest before making an entry in the Safety Gate: the EU rapid alert system for dangerous non-food products (RAPEX for short). Nevertheless, it is advisable as an economic operator to deal with the mechanisms of this method beforehand, if necessary also to avoid impending recalls.
Finally, this type of risk assessment can also be a valuable and targeted tool in cooperation with market surveillance authorities. The similar approach makes communication between the economic operator and the supervisory authority much easier.
Our seminar places the RAPEX risk assessment in the context of the product liability law product monitoring obligations, the practical market surveillance and at the same time explains their opportunities and risks.
Your speakers are Sebastian Jockusch, Managing Director of fox Compliance GmbH and Dr. Ulrich Becker, lawyer at CMS Germany.
We look forward to your participation in our free online seminar.
