Hair StraighteneAs a part of the Joint Action 2016 (JA2016), this work will include surveillance activities, product testing, risk assessment of the products tested and eventual action needed to be taken. Appropriate test methods for the other products will be identified as needed depending on the products sampled. In addition, for these kind of products, it is of particular importance to know how the products are judged on LVD compliance by the manufacturer. Therefore, the EC declaration of conformity and the relevant parts of the Technical File (TF) will also be verified.

The participants will carry out coordinated market surveillance in their national markets. The work plan comprises 6 project meetings (including a 2-day meeting with the participation of stakeholders), testing of an estimated 105 products with the results being presented at the final conference of the Joint Action.Hair Drier
