4 March 2013
The International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization’s (ICPHSO) 20th Annual Meeting and Training Symposium was held last week (26 February – 1 March), bringing together a global audience of regulators, retailers, manufacturers, consumers, standards and testing organizations, and others who convened in Arlington, Virginia for the four-day conference on consumer product safety.
The 2013 conference celebrated ICPHSO’s 20th anniversary, and featured speakers and panelists who focused on a broad range of topics, including obligations in the supply chain such as reporting requirements and recalls; port surveillance; tools for understanding and anticipating product failures; state chemicals of concern regulations; and best practices for effective compliance with an increasing number of international safety standards and regimes.
The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission hosted a full day of workshops on February 28th, including tours of the CPSC Engineering Lab in Rockville, Maryland. The meeting ended with ABA Law Day and a focus on federal and state product labeling and involuntary recalls through administrative litigation.
Created in 1993, ICPHSO is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing forums for the exchange of ideas and information on health and safety issues related to consumer products manufacturers and marketed in the global marketplace.
