Is it possible for market surveillance authorities to take action if the economic operators fail to bring the product into compliance?

If the product is considered non-compliant by the market surveillance authorities and the economic operator fails to follow the instructions from competent authorities to bring the concerned products into compliance, the market surveillance authorities can take all necessary measures including the temporary or permanent withdrawal of the concerned units from the Union market and sanctions on economic operators.
