The Advisory Group on Market Surveillance (MARS) is a unique forum where market surveillance agencies and conformity assessment bodies can exchange on best practices and improved coordination internationally. It promotes the best practices developed in Recommendation N on Good Market Surveillance Policies and Practices and Recommendation M on the Use of Market Surveillance Infrastructure as a Complementary Means to Protect Consumers and Users against Counterfeit Goods. It develops further guidance to help standards development organizations to effectively roll out gender-responsive standards, including the Glossary of Market Surveillance Terms.
All experts are welcome to join these meetings.
During this meeting, MARS will assess the progress of its activities in the 2023 Programme of Work and decide on the priorities for the coming period. It will report on projects, publications and other activities that have been accomplished since the June 2022 annual meeting. The meeting will also feature some exchanges of best practices in market surveillance and conformity assessment.
This meeting is taking place as part of the WP.6 Second Forum. Find out about the other meetings at this webpage.
