Australian Competition and Consumer Commission

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) is an independent statutory authority which promotes competition and fair trade in the market place to benefit consumers, business and the community. Its primary responsibility is to ensure that individuals and businesses comply with the Commonwealth's competition, fair trading and consumer protection laws. As the national product safety regulator, the ACCC administers a range of mandatory standards and product bans. Its role includes monitoring the safety of new and existing products on the market and addressing any risks identified through education and, where necessary, regulation.

Inmetro is a federal organization responsible for implementing the national policies on metrology and quality, is the Brazilian Accreditation Body and the Focal Point for Technical Barriers to Trade in Brazil.

As a regulator of more than 150 non-food products, Inmetro develops conformity assessment programs with the main objective of improving product safety. Products with mandatory conformity assessment programs are monitored in the 26 Brazilian states to protect consumers, removing irregular products from the marketplace. Inmetro Marketing Surveillance Activities helps to identify important changes in the national standards, modifications on product design by the manufactures for better safety and give technical basis to promote enforcement actions if necessary.

 

   

Health Canada

Health Canada is the federal department responsible for helping the people of Canada maintain and improve their health. Health Canada is committed to improving the lives of all of Canada's people and to making the country's population among the healthiest in the world as measured by longevity, lifestyle and effective use of the public health care system.

European Commission

The European Commission is one of the main institutions of the European Union (EU). It represents and upholds the interests of the EU as a whole. It drafts proposals for new European laws. It manages the day-to-day business of implementing EU policies. The European Commission's Directorate-General for Health and Consumers (DG SANCO) helps to ensure that food and consumer goods sold in the European Union (EU) are safe, that the EU's internal market works for the benefit of consumers and that Europe helps protect and improve its citizens' health. DG SANCO manages the Rapid Alert System (RAPEX) which ensures that information about dangerous products withdrawn from the market and/or recalled from consumers anywhere in Europe is quickly circulated between Member States and the European Commission, so that appropriate action can be taken everywhere in the EU. The scope of RAPEX covers dangerous non-food products intended for consumers (e.g. a toy, a cosmetic, clothing) and for professionals (e.g. a power drill, a machine, a construction product). Thirty countries currently participate in the system (all the EU countries and the three EFTA/EEA (European Free Trade Association/ European Economic Area).

 

The data provided by the European Commission are first published in English free of charge as Weekly overview reports of RAPEX notifications by the European Commission's Directorate-General for Health and Consumers on the European Union's official website 'Europa' through the EU Rapid Alert System for non-food consumer products (RAPEX) http://ec.europa.eu/rapex © European Union, 2005–2012. The official contact points of the Member and EFTA-EEA States provide the information published in these weekly overviews. Under the terms of Annex II.10 to the General Product Safety Directive (2001/95/EC) responsibility for the information provided lies with the notifying party. The Commission does not take any responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided.

   

Mexican Consumer Protection Federal Agency (Profeco)

The Consumer Protection Federal Agency (Profeco) of Mexico is a government agency, established on 1976, that has administrative authority and has been entrusted to promote and protect the rights and interests of consumers, by seeking fairness and legal certainty in the relationships between suppliers and consumers.

The legal framework of Profeco foresees as one of the basic principles in consumption relations the protection of life, health and safety of consumers against risks caused by products, practices to supply products, and services considered dangerous or harmful. For this, among its authorities, Profeco enforces and surveils the application of technical standards to ensure safety and quality of products, and it also assesses products to guarantee that they comply with technical standards and do not represent a risk to consumer health or safety.

 

   

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children. The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals - contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
