Safety Gate: the EU rapid alert system for dangerous non-food products
The Safety Gate system enables that information on measures taken against non-food dangerous products is circulated quickly among the national authorities responsible for product safety in the Single Market countries.
Every day, national authorities send alerts to the Safety Gate. Each alert contains information on the kind of product detected as dangerous, a description of the risk and the measures taken by the economic operator or ordered by the authority. Every alert is followed-up by the other authorities, which take their own measures if they find the same product in their own national markets.
Other countries have the obligation to follow up this information and if they find the same product on their own markets, they have to share this information on Safety Gate as well.
