European Commission to Reward Product Safety Champions
In September 2019, the European Commission is awarding its Product Safety Award to businesses that go beyond the minimum EU regulatory requirements to ensure product safety and to protect consumers. The award allows businesses who champion product safety to earn widespread recognition for their efforts and possibly even win some news customers. In 2019, the prize will be awarded in two categories: (i) safety of products sold online and (ii) safety of childcare products. In total, juries at national and EU-level will choose 12 winners as a Gold, Silver or Bronze Award will be given to three SMEs and three large businesses in each of the two categories. The winners will receive their awards from Commissioner Věra Jourová in a ceremony in Brussels and will get a chance to share their ideas and best practices with their industry peers. Applications can be submitted online until 7 April 2019.
