Guidance for Market Control on Prepackages For Competent Departments- 247Kb


January 2008, Issue 1



This guide is intended to cover market control of e-marked products. The guide may also be used for non-e-marked products that (based on national legislation) should comply with the same requirements.

This guide has been produced with a view to achieving a consistent level of market control in respect of e-marked pre-packages throughout the EU/EEA. Directives 76/211/EEC and 75/106/EEC, together with 80/232/EEC, constitute the legal basis for pre-packages sold by weight or volume in the EEA and Switzerland.

The guide is intended for those who prepare, organise and carry out market control functions, which is a type of metrological supervision that is directed to pre-packages, which are placed on the market, or are intended to be placed on the market, in order to ensure conformity of the products with the requirements.


Unless otherwise stated, the English version of each publication should be taken as the official version.
