The European Commission published on 13 March 2023 its annual report on the Safety Gate, the European Union's rapid alert system for dangerous non-food products.

Further information:

The Safety Gate is a Rapid Alert System for dangerous non-food products (RAPEX). It ensures that information about the products withdrawn from the market and/or recalled anywhere in the European Union (EU) is quickly circulated between Member States and the European Commission. This way, appropriate follow-up action can be taken everywhere in the EU.

The report covers alerts notified during 2022, and the responses given by national authorities. Health risks linked to chemical substances was the most frequent type of risk notified, which was found also in a wider variety of products. For the second consecutive year, toys and cars top the list of most notified product categories.
