Objective 1 - Keep non-compliant products from the single market

Products which are non-compliant with Union harmonisation legislation keep finding their way on the Single Market. Market surveillance authorities sometimes lack the resources to finance product testing and other activities to promote compliance. The first objective of this call is to support authorities of the Member States of the Union in their market surveillance activities related to product testing aimed at assessing product compliance with respect to EU harmonised legislation

The products concerned by this objective fall within the scope of one or more of the legal instruments set out in Annex I of Regulation (EU) 2019/1020. 

Objective 2 - Support the implementation of Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 

Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 on market surveillance and compliance of products applies since
16 July 2021.

The second objective of this call is to support horizontal actions aimed at contributing to an efficient implementation of Regulation 2019/1020
