Each day, the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) evaluates information regarding product shortcomings from an exceptional variety of different sources. At least once each year, we report about our knowledge of product safety in our information service.
Among others, the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) also supports the German market surveillance authorities with the development and completion of its monitoring concept. This also takes place on the basis of the statistical evaluation of official reports regarding hazardous products, national RAPEX notifications and fatal accidents at work, for example.
The annual statistics regarding product shortcomings "Hazardous products - information on product safety" are available on our German Website to download as a PDF. We will be pleased to respond to individual data-related enquiries. Our publications also include the official announcements of the directories of standards and the interdiction orders issued by the market surveillance authorities.
