The Safety of the Romanian Non-food Products in the European Community Context
MetadataShow full item record
Providing a safe market to the European consumer is a prerequisite of the community and national policies. As a member state of the EU, Romania is trying to catch up with the existing differences in the field of protecting the consumer’s interest and safety. Rapid Alert System for dangerous non-food products is an efficient instrument for preventing the dangerous non-food products on the market. The low volume of non-food product exports by the European partners triggers a low number of notifications for autochthonous products. The dependence of the internal market on imports is reflected by a notification structure which is very close to the one reported on community level. A complete analysis of the notifications of dangerous products must consider, besides the volume of sales, the specific of the market where the product will be merchandized.
