Rapid Alert System is the EU system for all dangerous consumer products, with the exception of food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The report includes detailed information on the products concerned, the risks, the notifying Member State, and the measures adopted in response. The Rapid Alert System enables quick exchange of information between 31 European countries and the European Commission about dangerous non-food products posing a risk to health and safety of consumers. Each week, an update of the latest alerts sent by Member States is published on the website. This message service allows subscribers to be informed on these Alerts on a weekly basis.
The Commission does not take any responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided. In the event that further information received from a national competent authority regarding an already published notification leads to the modification or withdrawal of the information, the Commission will include a corrigendum or notice of withdrawal in the next weekly overview.
