In July 2020 the Joint Market Surveillance Action on HARmonized Products 2018 – JAHARP18 – completed the first 9-months of its implementation. The EU co-funded project comprises two product-specific activities relating to Recreational Craft Directive (RCD, jet skis and small inflatable boats) and Low Voltage Directive (LVD, Portable Room Heaters).
The action has two key objectives: (i) to improve safety and reduce accidents relating to two selected product groups; (ii) to decrease unfair competition in the European Single Market. 11 Market Surveillance Authorities (MSAs) from 9 European Union (EU) Member States participate and carry out the product inspections and testing. European Commission (EC)/DG GROW oversees the planning and execution of the activities. PROSAFE is the Project Coordinator.
