Regulation (EU) 2019/1020 - Framework for Market Surveillance

The framework for market surveillance established by this Regulation complements and strengthens the existing provisions in Union harmonization legislation relating to the ensuring of compliance of products.

This means that, in accordance with the principle of lex specialis, this Regulation should apply only in so far as there are no specific provisions with the same objective, nature or effect in Union harmonization legislation. The corresponding provisions of this Regulation should therefore not apply in the areas covered by such specific provisions, for instance those set out in the Cosmetics Regulation 1223/2009, Medical Device Regulation 2017/745, In-Vitro Devices Regulation 2017/746, Motor Vehicle Regulation 2018/858, etc.
