Product safety pledge by online marketplaces

The European Commission has recently liaised with four biggest online marketplaces (Alibaba, Amazon, eBay and Rakuten) to have them agree on taking faster action to remove dangerous products from among their listings. The commitment is to act within 2 working days upon a notification by authorities of the Member States, and within 5 working days - if the notification comes from customers (see further European Commission and four online marketplaces sign a Product Safety Pledge to remove dangerous products). This new arrangement specifies the general 'speedy' notion for removal of such dangerous products that was set in the e-Commerce Directive.
