Recall

The European Union has 2 alert exchange systems to monitor consumer products that poses a risk to health and consumer safety between their member states: The Rapid Exchange of Information System (RAPEX) for electrical appliances, clothing or toys and The Rapid Alert System for Food and Feed (RASFF) for food safety risks.

In Q1 of 2019, there are abundant of recall cases on electrical and electronic and food contact materials products via these warning systems.  Moreover, on July 22, 2019, the latest incarnation of RoHS (the Restriction of Hazardous Substances) will come into full effect across the European Union. If you're an electronics manufacturer who sells applicable electronic products or sub-assemblies to EU or countries—or if you're supplying to resellers or distributors who sell products on to RoHS countries—then RoHS 2.0 compliance applies to you.
