Product safety legislation
The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) is the market surveillance authority and the competent authority in Ireland for safety of non-food consumer products covered by certain EU Directives and EU Regulations. These EU Directives and EU Regulations have been transposed into Irish law by way of Irish Statutory Instruments.
It is the market surveillance authority for harmonised product safety legislation applicable to toys, low voltage equipment, personal protective equipment for consumer use, and appliances burning gaseous fuels for consumer use. It is also the competent authority for consumer products within the scope of the general product safety regime. The CCPC is also a market surveillance authority for the purposes of EU Regulation No. 765/2008.
