ICPHSO Calls for International Symposium Presentations on Product Safety Alignment

19 June 2015

The International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO) will bring together product safety professionals from across industries and global markets to discuss issues of interest to product safety professionals at its International Symposium in Billund, Denmark on October 20-21, 2015. Organizers are now accepting proposals for presentations that address this year’s theme, “Building Toward Greater Alignment in Product Safety.”

“The annual International Symposium is a great venue for toy safety professionals and others in the ICPHSO community to exchange information and perspectives on achievement of greater alignment between safety standards and enforcement, and other related issues,” said Al Kaufman, TIA’s senior vice president of technical affairs and president of ICPHSO. “If you have an idea that explores a new topic or a reoccurring issue in novel ways, I encourage you to submit a proposal.”

ICPHSO is seeking proposals for a panel, round-table, plenary session, interactive workshop or keynote speech that address one or more of the following:

How to operate in an unaligned world: the challenges of communicating safety information to consumers globally, and international alignment of product safety enforcement
Changes in Europe’s product safety regulation
The use of risk assessment in various states of the product life cycle
Differences in consumer behavior across different regions
Emerging safety hazards for children, the elderly, and other vulnerable populations
Product traceability
Global safety implications of the Digital Economy and the Internet of Things
New technologies and new risks
Product safety regulation and enforcement in emerging markets

Product safety professionals interested in presenting at the symposium can complete and submit an application, found on the ICPHSO website, by July 3, 2015. For more information, contact ICPHSO’s Paul Rossman (p.rossman@ICPHSO.org).
