The General Product Safety Directive - GPSD - (2001/95/EC) has established the legal basis for the Rapid Alert System for Non-Food Products - RAPEX.

The RAPEX concerns dangerous consumer products. It is used by the EEA members to rapidly exchange information on such products. Now, the European Commission makes that information publicly available on its website. Updates are usually done on a weekly basis. Two to four products are generally added by every update to the system.
