Products may be withdrawn from the market as a consequence of stricter legislation aimed at the protection of consumers and of the environment.
Decisions causing restrictions to the marketing of products are of EU competence as the lack of harmonisation of member states' national legislations may constitute a technical barrier to intra-EU trade and impede the freedom of movement for goods in intra-Community trade.
