Online Sales of Non-Compliant Products - a Workshop of Experts will present problems and solutions

September 4, 2018

EucoLight is organizing a workshop on 17 Oct in Brussels to discuss problems with online non-compliance. Case studies from several sectors will highlight the possible extent of the problem, including VAT non-payment, non-compliance with safety standards, and WEEE freeriding. Policy makers and key stakeholders will debate challenges, visions and possible solutions to ensure a level playing field. 

As Marc Guiraud, Secretary General of EucoLight, points out: “The Digital economy is a success story that holds many promises. Nevertheless, a recent OECD report indicated though that non-compliance is a growing concern for products sold online. In our experience the lighting sector is particularly vulnerable to free riding as products are small, lightweight, and robust enough to be shipped easily. But in reality, consequences from this problem are widespread and rules for product safety, environmental regulations, tax compliance and internal market regulations are affected. We have therefore invited representatives from various sectors and institutions.”

In particular the topic will be relevant to:
•    Producers, consumers, distributors and online retail representatives
•    Product testing organisations 
•    European and international institutions
•    Market surveillance experts
•    Extended producers responsibility organisations
