With the cooling weather (at least in some parts of the world!) we turn our attention to ICPHSO’s International Symposium scheduled November 14-15, 2017, in Tokyo, Japan at the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba. Symposium Planning Chair Rod Freeman and his planning committee have developed an agenda over two days that includes critical safety information around the theme, “It Started with an Idea: Safety in the Product Life Cycle.”
This is ICPHSO’s first Symposium in Tokyo and with less than 40 days to go the Symposium is set to be one of the best ever. With nearly 100 attendees expected from 11 countries, participants include regulators from the Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), Japan Consumer Affairs Agency (CAA), National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE), European Commission, Health Canada and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Attendees represent all sectors of the consumer product safety community, including, manufacturers, retailers, consumers, testing and certification laboratories, associations, service providers and many others.
You don’t want to miss this Symposium so be sure to register today while hotel rooms are still available. Further information about the International Symposium can be found on ICPHSO’s website and here. Your registration includes access to all sessions, where translation services will be provided, as well as two days with breakfast, lunch, networking breaks, receptions and access to presentations after the Symposium.
I look forward to seeing you in Tokyo and thanks again to our sponsors, speakers, and attendees for your continued support of ICPHSO as we further our mission to provide product safety training and education to safety and health professionals around the world.
