Getting the Deal Through – Product Recall 2014
The basic legislative documents that set the Greek legal framework on product safety are Ministerial Decision Z3/2810/14 of December 2004 (the MD), which implemented EU Directive 2001/95/EC on General Product Safety (GPSD) and Law 2251/1994 on Consumers’ Protection (usually referred to as the Consumers’ Law, as in force today – Law 2251), which, inter alia, implemented EU Directive 85/374/EEC on the approximation of the laws, regulations and administrative provisions of the member states concerning liability for defective products (as amended by EU Directive 99/34/EC, the PL
Directive). The above legal framework is supplemented by Regulation (EC) No. 765/2008 setting out the requirements for accreditation and market surveillance relating to the marketing of products, in force as of 1 January 2010.
