The General Product Safety Directive provides the EU legal framework for the safety of non-food consumer products.

The Directive is nearly 20 years old and as such does not reflect any more the developments in products and markets. It does not explicitly address the fact that new technologies can impact product safety. There is a need to include clear provisions in the EU product safety legislation to explicitly address safety risks linked to products incorporating new technologies, such as connected products and AI. Furthermore, while the Directive applies to consumer products regardless if they are sold offline or online, e-commerce poses new challenges to the safety of consumers that need to be tackled.

The EESC adopted unanimously in September 2020 the opinion "SME strategy". Amongst its main conclusions were the plead to the Commission to draw up a "Next Generation SME Strategy". Unfortunately, in its 2021 Work Program, the European Commission chose to commit to an update of the Industrial, but not of the SME Strategy.

The legislative proposal follows the adoption of the White Paper in June 2020 and an extensive consultation process with stakeholders. It aims at closing the regulatory gap in the Single Market, whereby subsidies granted by non-EU governments currently go largely unchecked, while subsidies granted by Member States are subject to close scrutiny. The new tool is designed to effectively tackle foreign subsidies that cause distortions and harm the level playing field in the Single Market in any market situation. It is also a key element to deliver on the updated EU Industrial Strategy also adopted today, by promoting a fair and competitive Single Market thereby setting the right conditions for the European industry to thrive.

Micro enterprises and SMEs (MSME) in all fields need good conditions to survive the health and economic crisis and unlock their potential so that they can grow and create jobs. This opinion will examine alternatives to address the administrative ("paper tax") burden on MSMEs, particularly in view of current transparency and disclosure measures to achieve the EU's social and environmental objectives.
