To ICPHSO continues to work with ASTM and other organizations to bring you current and timely product safety information. We are pleased to announce a one-day workshop on October 10, 2017 at the Law Offices of Covington & Burling LLP, 50 Tenth Street, NW, Washington, D.C. from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. There is no cost to attend this workshop and all are welcome.
This one-day workshop will help participants better understand the potential benefits, drawbacks, and limitations of voluntary safety standards, the process for developing a consensus-based standard, some key considerations associated with standard development, and how regulators and government representatives perceive the utility and role of voluntary safety standards. The workshop’s panels will feature representatives from various manufacturers, retailers, law firms, standards organizations, global regulatory agencies, and consumer advocacy organizations who will present the full range of views.
While there is no cost to attend the workshop, advance registration will be required. Click Here to Register on the ASTM website. The agenda will be posted on the ICPHSO and ASTM website soon.
