  • Making Europe's consumers safer

    http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/safety/rapex/ The RAPEX rapid alert system for dangerous consumer products is proving a success throughout Europe. The system is intended to address risks to health and safety through the rapid exchange of information between EU countries. When a non-food product is found to be dangerous, the national authorities notify the commission which can then either ban the product or let it be sold on certain conditions. In April, the EU revealed the results of the 2006 RAPEX report, which highlights a sharp rise in the number of notifications resulting in the withdrawal from the market of many products.

    http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/safety/rapex/ European consumers are having a hard time getting their bearings. They are not comfortable with the idea of buying something in another country of the European Union: only one out of five people have done so over the past twelve months. And yet, the EU single market offers many possibilities for competition and for buying at a lower price.

    http://www.euronews.com/ The centre of Paris is not the best place to buy petrol, as hypermarkets are far away in the suburbs and a lack of competition means some filling stations are gouging motorists mercilessly. However, all over Europe consumers are groaning at the spiralling petrol and diesel costs, even if not everywhere is facing Parisian prices. "2.02 euros for a litre of 95 unleaded? It's too much...it keeps going up, it doesn't stop. Where's it going to end?" said one commuter, and he was riding a thrifty moped. The disparity between the price of a litre of oil and a litre of refined fuel is enormous, and mostly because of taxes, which will not fall as long as governments are strapped for cash.

Then there are supply-side problems. Non-OPEC producers are struggling to increase production, and OPEC itself has little spare capacity. Lead producer Saudi Arabia is already pumping nearly 10 million barrels a day, a near 30-year peak in output. World demand for a finite product continues to rise, while new discoveries fail to keep pace with that booming demand, mostly from Asia. The only check on rising prices appears to be that they may in themselves choke economic recovery and stifle demand, surely no economist's suggested method of trimming pump prices.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Boris Tadic, President of Serbia: "And I am expecting in the future, we are going to bring more producers." 18. Wide of Fiat presentation area STORYLINE: Small cars were looking more sleek and sporty at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday as global carmakers, struggling to make a profit in Europe, tried to entice consumers to look past the continent's economic gloom. In a theatrical performance centered around contemporary dance, Peugeot displayed their new 208 model. A fresh alliance signed last week between General Motors (GM) and Peugeot is a indication that the industry is looking at ways to cut costs. GM will take a seven per cent stake in Peugeot in a deal which foresees a common platform by 2016 and synergies in the purchase of parts. The carmakers say it will save them 2 (b) billion US dollars a year within five years, split roughly equally. "I think it is a tremendous opportunity for our group, not only for the improvement we are going to make on the platforms, but also in term of purchasing," said Xavier Peugeot, the Product Director for the Peugeot brand. Fiat launched its 500L, an elongated version of the tiny 500 city car which is being made in Serbia, much to the delight of Serbian President Boris Tadic, who attended the show. "In company with Fiat, we are restarting production of the cars in Serbia. I am very proud because of that," he said. The 500L will be produced at the new Fiat factory in Kragujevac (Serbia) as part of a joint venture agreed in 2008 between Fiat Group Automobiles and the Government of the Republic of Serbia. The onset of the financial crisis in 2008 brought cash-for-clunker (run-down vehicle or machine) incentives which allowed drivers to receive a bonus to buy a new car if they scrapped an old one. The incentives propped up the industry and delayed the inevitable reckoning with the fact that Europe has too many idle factories - something most European car executives say shouldn't be repeated. Fiat is among a long list of European carmakers that is losing money in Europe which includes Peugeot-Citroen PSA, General Motors' Adam Opel, and Renault.
