Technical consumer protection; market surveillance Ecodesign / energy consumption labeling

The Trade Supervisory Office at the Government of Swabia is responsible for monitoring environmentally friendly design (ecodesign) and energy consumption labeling.



Market surveillance in Bavaria is carried out by the trade supervisory offices of the individual governments. The Bavarian trade supervisory authorities thus represent both the interests of consumers in safe products and the protection of the environment as well as the legitimate interests of manufacturers and importers in protection against unfair competitive practices. The Bavarian Trade Supervisory Offices at the governments have each specialized in very specific product areas of market surveillance. You can find an overview of the relevant responsibilities under "Further links".
