Between 2014 and 2016, the FPS Economy, SMEs, Self-employed and Energy conducted two control campaigns on smoke alarms.

This construction product has the particularity of being intended for the final consumer. These campaigns were carried out following actions launched by Ad-Co Construction products (Administrative Cooperation Group Construction Products) and PROSAFE (Product Safety Forum of Europe).

In 2014, the Ad-Co Construction products group launched an action for the market surveillance of smoke detectors. One of the tasks of this group is to ensure effective cooperation and exchange of information between the market surveillance authorities and the European Commission.

One of its tasks is the adoption of a common language within the Member States for the market surveillance of construction products, in accordance with the requirements of Regulation 305/2011 and within the scope of harmonised technical specifications.

Independently of the campaign organised by the Ad-Co Construction products group, PROSAFE has launched, together with 7 other Member States including Belgium, a more global monitoring action of the smoke detector market, aiming at consumer protection.

PROSAFE is a non-profit professional organisation for market surveillance authorities in the European Union. Its main objective is to improve the safety of consumers of products and services in Europe.
