The International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO) and ASTM International are sponsoring a one-day workshop on the development of voluntary safety standards for consumer products. 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, advance registration will be required. Breakfast, lunch, and breaks will be provided. As additional information on registration and the workshop agenda becomes available, it will be posted at www.icphso.org and www.astm.org.
We ask all attendees to preregister for this meeting. The registration information significantly assists us in preparations for the meeting.
The cut-off for preregistration is October 5, 2017.
