Dangerous product - release for free circulation in the EU not authorised
Editorial word. The website of the State Consumer Rights Protection Authority (SCRPA), Lithuania contains numerous reports of prohibited products to be placed on the market, for example, due
to the risk of injury, it is prohibited to place a scooter from China on the market (see picture below). Therefore, importers seeking the smooth release of goods for free circulation need to be certain of the product's compliance with EU safety requirements. Mr. Arvydas Naina, Head of the Market Surveillance Planning and Risk Assessment Division, SCRPA, kindly agreed to answer questions on the topic.
