Earlier this month, the eBay Government Relations Team launched a new video series called “Issues in Focus”. The goal of this series is to provide our community with background information on policy issues impacting ecommerce sellers and buyers around the world as well as online marketplaces. Our first episode is hosted by Stefan Krawczyk, the head of eBay’s Government Relations Team in Europe, and focused on the European General Product Safety Regulation (GPSR). The GPSR is a new proposal from the European Commission in order to update the existing General Product Safety Directive to address the challenges of product safety in light of emerging technologies and increased cross-border trade. eBay is actively calling on EU institutions to agree on a proportionate Regulation that considers the reality and constraints of small businesses that use our marketplace. Thank for watching today and stay tuned for new episodes. We also encourage you to visit ebaypolicy.eu for more information on policy issues affecting e-commerce across Europe.
