Rapid Alert System is the EU system for all dangerous consumer products, with the exception of food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices. The Rapid Alert System enables quick exchange of information between 31 European countries and the European Commission about dangerous non-food products posing a risk to health and safety of consumers. The alerts include detailed information on the products concerned, the risks, the notifying Member State, and the measures adopted in response. Each week, an update of the latest alerts sent by Member States is published on the European Commission website. This message service allows subscribers to keep informed about these alerts on a weekly basis.
