3 S W E D I S H C O D E O F S TAT U T E S • S F S 2 0 0 4 : 4 5 1 Objective and scope of the Act Section 1 The objective of this Act is to ensure that goods and services that are provided to consumers do not cause personal injury. Directive 2001/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 3 December 2001 on general product safety¹ is implemented through this Act. Section 2 This Act applies to goods and services that are provided commercially and as regards goods that are supplied through public activities. It is a precondition that the goods or services are intended for consumers or likely to be used by consumers. The provisions of this Act concerning tradesmen and manufacturers also apply to a person who through public activities supplies such goods as referred to in the first paragraph. Section 3 This Act does not apply to 1. second-hand goods supplied as antiques, and 2. goods to be repaired or reconditioned before they can be put into use, provided the tradesman clearly informs the consumer that it is such goods that are involved. Section 4 The provisions contained in Sections 7 to 9, 11 and 12 shall not be applied to goods as regards risks that are subject to specific safety requirements contained in any other enactment or in an EC regulation. The provisions contained in Sections 13 to 18 and 20 to 45 shall not be applied to goods to the extent that some other enactment implementing an EC directive or in an EC regulation contains provisions governing the same matter and which have the same objective. Provisions contained in any other enactment than as referred to in the second paragraph shall be applied to goods instead of Sections 13 to 18 or 20 to 45, to the extent that the provisions govern the same matter and have the same objective and also satisfy the corresponding requirements under this Act. Section 5 The provisions contained in Sections 7, 8, 10 and 12 shall not be applied to services as regards risks that are covered by specific safety requirements in any other enactment. ¹OfFcial Journal L 001, 15/1/2002, p.4-17 (Celex32001L0095).
