Everyone in the chain of supply, from the manufacturer, importer, distributor to the retailer has some responsibility to ensure that the critical safety rules are met. However, there is a particular responsibility placed on the manufacturer. The manufacturer controls issues such as the design, production and ongoing checks to ensure conformity with the requirements. The manufacturer is in the best position to ensure products along the supply chain are safe. If safe products leave the factory, it is likely that everyone else supplying those products along the chain will therefore supply safe products and EU consumers will be protected.
Consumers are increasingly buying products online The core product safety requirements and therefore the responsibility of a manufacturer to ensure the products are safe, remain unchanged for online sales. However, further rules apply to online sales to help EU market surveillance authorities carry out their work and to provide extra level of protection for consumers.
