ESF September seminar focuses on bringing safe products to market
Electrical Safety First is holding a product safety seminar entitled ‘Mitigating risk through conformity assessment – ensuring product safety throughout the supply chain’, which is applicable to all businesses designing, producing importing or selling electrical goods, on Monday 23rd September at Mary Ward House, 5-7 Tavistock Place, London WC1H 9SN.
The event is supported by the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) and a key focus will be the forthcoming PAS 7050 which is being developed to provide guidance for business and regulators in bringing safe products to market.
During the day, an expert panel will offer views on best practice for mitigating risk through conformity assessment and there will also be a practical workshop for delegates to put theory into practice.
Key speakers include Gordon Maddan, Assistant Director at the OPSS, and Judith Peacock, Group Technical and Health and Safety Director at Dixons Carphone.
“This event will help delegates – from large corporates to SMEs – understand the processes required to help demonstrate that products are safe and legally compliant, including what can be expected from the anticipated PAS 7050,” commented Martyn Allen, Technical Director at Electrical Safety First.
“So, whatever your business size, or extent of your supply chain – from initial product concept through to manufacture or direct import – this essential seminar can help ensure you bring your goods safely to market.”
