European Regulation of Consumer Product Safety

Christopher Hodges

Oxford University Press

This Part of the book critically evaluates the various mechanisms that are adopted in the different vertical and horizontal product sectors. The objective of this part is to analyse the following points. Firstly, to identify the purpose and nature of each technique. Secondly, to find out the situations in which each technique is used. Thirdly, to find out to whom are the obligations applied. Fourthly, to ask how effective each individual technique is in contributing to safety. The general categories of techniques that are examined here are: control of the design process; pre-marketing assessment requirements; control of the manufacturing environment and process; post-marketing requirements on producers, distributors, and the authorities; and the requirements of users. These mechanisms are ordered in this sequence to follow the chronological path in which products are designed, developed, and marketed.

Keywords:   product sectors, design process, pre-marketing assessment, producers, distributors
