MarketWatch will start product check-tests in the coming weeks, purchasing 100 appliances from around Europe and running them through expertly-devised tests developed by independent consultancies, in liaison with national authorities. We’re a little behind schedule here, following a second round of expert input to complement work already undertaken. First up though, we’re putting the finishing touches to our list of target products, informed by a long list of intelligence sources. MarketWatch wants to involve outside civil society interests, so further intelligence from such groups is welcome. The finale will be full-blown lab tests of the most suspicious products followed by dialogue with manufacturers and media.
