Content management system – Improving the safety of products online
Identifying and removing dangerous products that find their way onto online marketplaces is an ever-present challenge. A unique content management system was developed to check for EU declarations of conformity while handling many online transactions. Online marketplaces can use the system to check that the required technical documentation is up to standard and automatically block listings if necessary.
This innovation takes a proactive approach to product safety and aims to enhance both consumer protection and fair competition. It is a tool that allows online marketplaces to ensure consumer welfare and remove dangerous goods before they are offered for sale. In doing so, it also raises economic operators’ awareness of their responsibilities when putting products on the EU market.
“This is a step forward for online marketplaces themselves to prevent unsafe products being sold on their platforms,” noted the Jury.
