The EU has a direct conduit for market surveillance authorities to communicate information about non-compliant products directly between 31 EU member nations and the European Commission.
This system is called the Rapid Alert System, or RAPEX.
This is not where you want your products to show up after a web search, see below.
This site, published and continuously updated by the EU Commission, highlights and posts non-compliant products. These are products that were stopped in customs, started a fire, broke and proved unsafe, or were questioned and subsequently found to be non-compliant after further review.
Below is an example of a product that was stopped in Germany and then submitted to RAPEX.
Below is another.
The way to avoid this is by determining which EU laws apply to your equipment and then making sure that the product complies.
