The GlobalRecalls portal brings together information on product recalls being issued around the world, on a regular basis, together in one place – on an OECD platform.

The portal includes information on mandatory and voluntary consumer product recalls which were issued by a governmental body and were made publicly available.


The GlobalRecalls portal was launched at International Product Safety Week on 19 October 2012, in Brussels, Belgium. View the event agenda and pictures from the launch.



This webcast is also available in English, French and Spanish.
