ICPHSO-ASTM Age Grading Roundtable Registration Now Open….

Roundtable on Products & the Appeal to Children:  Applications & Consequences

ICPHSO is pleased to again join with ASTM to bring you a free one day workshop on age grading.   Age determination is a critical step in the development of children’s products. But the appeal of a product to children is also important to consider in the development of general use products. This session will explore new research and the CPSC’s updated age-grading guidelines, as well as how those may be informative for general use products, and the consequences of “getting it wrong”.

This free workshop is open to all but you must pre-register with ASTM to attend.  The workshop is being hosted at the Law Offices of Covington & Burling, 850 10th Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20001.  The workshop is being held from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm and includes breakfast, breaks, and lunch.  Hotel accommodations have not been arranged so you will need to make your own hotel arrangements.  There are several hotels near the meeting site.  Check the Covington website for details.

This roundtable continues the collaboration between ICPHSO and the ASTM F157100 Liquid Laundry Packets Subcommittee, which have previously sponsored workshops on Voluntary Standards, Information and Education Programs and the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.
