Systematization of EU Product Safety Regulation – Governing the EU Market State

  • Kai Purnhagen
Part of the Ius Gentium: Comparative Perspectives on Law and Justice book series (IUSGENT, volume 26)


The systematization of EU product safety law contributes to the building of an EU market state as a regulative ideal. As the example of EU product safety regulation will show, the EU’s statecraft is defined by its multi-level governance structure, which mainly aims at providing incentives in order to better provide economic security and designated public goods, summarized as welfare. The role of the state is thereby transformed from welfare to market concepts. This becomes evident when we look at the form of regulation. The ‘privatization’ of EU product safety regulation makes increasingly use of incentive-mechanisms instead of providing classical top-down regulation. Further, the concept of the individual as a bearer of rights and values as addressee of regulation is decreasing, as this concept has to be brought into conformity with the increasing normative economic concept of a ‘market citizen’, which contributes to the creation of a normative “market society”. Furthermore, the Court of Justice of the European Union’s role as ‘engine’ of integration is decreasing while other actors seeking to systematize the law take over this position. Finally, systematization in EU law unfolds its regulative potential by using it as an integrative tool with a view of harmonizing Member State legal systems by either confronting them or forcing them into a competition with other legal systems.
