Product Recall

The General Product Safety Regulations 2005 introduce duties for notifying unsafe products. For further details about notifying please see our "Unsafe Product Notification" page.

The European Commission (with BERR support) has issued a good practice guide "Product Safety in Europe" on corrective actions, including recall. The guide is aimed at improving the effectiveness of recalls of unsafe products from the community market.

The Trading Standards Central web site contains a list of recent product safety notices/recalls.
