Documents for Market Surveillance

The market surveillance of the products that fall within the scope of the Product Safety Act (ProdSG) is carried out in Germany by the enforcement authorities of the federal states. The Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) supports this activity within the scope of its tasks assigned in the ProdSG, which also include the downloads set here.

By replacing the Equipment and Product Safety Act (GPSG), certain references and links in the sample letter no longer correspond to the current legal situation. The documents are currently being revised, however, the documents provided here retain their character as a model or template, which must be adapted to the respective individual case.

Here, for example, there are references in the area of routine measures for the actions and communication of the market surveillance, as well as samples for communication between the market participants and the market surveillance authority.

In addition, you will find links to resolutions pretaining to product safety and "decisions" of the EU Commission as far as they have become known to BAuA.

In order to expand and maintain this material collection, we are also grateful for your advice to secure new and older decisions that are still relevant to market surveillance.
