Why SAFE PRODUCTS ?
Buying an electrical household appliance, a multiple socket, a luminare or any other electrical device for private use is connected with a large product offering with strong differences of prices at building center, specialized dealer or elsewhere.
By experience firstly the most pleasant product strikes the eye and only then the buyer is busy with the price.
Usually the next step is comparing the lowest price product and the most pleasant product mainly in the view of price differences, quality, features, handling and accessoires.
But purchase criterions like quality and safety only can be judged by the outer view. Surely internal quality and safety have the same status. However this is not visible for the buyer.
Not infrequently some inferior products feigning by the outer view the same level of quality and safety like qualitatively high leveled products
Neither the buyer nor the specialist can draw conclusions from the outer judgement to the safety and quality inside of the product.
However this is not only fact for the end users but also for purchasers like retailer, discounter, online- and specialized dealer importing their products from non-EU-countries. For these purchaser the same unmanageable situation occurs like for end-users staying in front of the endless long shelves
But there’s a significant difference between the customer as an end-user and the purchasers dealing the products on the EU- market as a customer of the manufacturer
The customer as end-user liables for nothing !
However the customer of the non-EU manufactuerer is full responsible for the product conformity in the view of actual directives and possible requirements by law.
As well liable for personal injuries and physical damages.The scope of regress demanding not should be underestimated.
The mindset “ There will nothing happen” is absolutely inappropriate
As soon as one of the participiants of the economic cycle has been informed by end-users, competitors or other third parties about non-conforming product properties this participant is be required reporting the concerning product to the responsible authorities which will research then who is the first distributor on the EU-market for clarification the responsibility. At the same time there will be estimated and fixed if and which action will be launched.
Essentially it concerned with the following measures :
Weekly such measures will be published by the european fast warning system RAPEX. The focus lies on safety relevant and non-directive conforming properties. Not only products are touched which already have caused a damage, in the same way potential risk afflicted products are touched in the view of electrical and mechanical safety as well in the view of unhealthy and harmful to the environment substances.
Reduce and minimize your financial risk as well as your liability risk !
