Joint enforcement actions under the multi-annual action plan for the surveillance of products in the EU
Description of call
"Joint enforcement actions under the multi-annual action plan for the surveillance of products in the EU"

The objective of the call is to provide financial support, allowing market surveillance authorities and customs to pool resources and expertise and to apply SME-friendly methods. The main objective of this initiative is to enhance the efficiency and effectiveness of the surveillance system in Europe, as well as to improve the coordination of the practical enforcement work carried out in relation to product categories or other priorities.
The Commission wants to support and encourage more and better market surveillance across borders within the EU, by financing joint market surveillance actions and other projects that contribute to a more efficient and effective market surveillance for products within the internal market.
