Product Safety Officer

Technical product safety is a key component of the regulatory compliance environment at EU level. Alongside this are the type approval and road traffic certification regulations. In contrast to the GSG (Equipment Safety Act), the fields of application of the Product Safety Act cover all supplier products as well as yet unnamed “end products”. This means that according to the product definition (§ 2 no. 22 ProdSG (Product Safety Act)) all components may be subject to local market surveillance measures.
