CE marking – Control by Belgian authorities: 2021 and 2022 follow-ups of the recommendations

general assembly on February 8, 2023

In its report to the Federal Parliament, the Belgian Court of Audit examined the implementation of the fifteen recommendations of its initial audit of January 2020. At that time, it had audited how Belgian public authorities monitored compliance with the CE marking requirements for products imported or marketed in Belgium. The follow-ups of 30 July 2021 and 30 November 2022 revealed that seven recommendations were met and eight were being implemented. The dialogue between market surveillance authorities, whether national or from other Member States, has improved, as has the quality of the data on monitoring and infringements. These improvements should contribute to a better monitoring of compliance with the CE marking requirements.
