New UK safety strategy

The Office for Product Safety and Standards has published Strengthening national capacity for product safety: Strategy 2018-2020.

This document outlines what they are already doing and what they are planning over the next two years to improve the safety of non-food products in the UK.

From our industry’s perspective, AMDEA hopes that the Office will be able to improve public understanding of why product registration is a sensible precaution and why consumers should respond to safety-related communications.

But, more importantly, we hope that the new approach to co-ordinated and resourced market surveillance will help remove the dangerous and/or counterfeit products that have proliferated with the growth of internet sales.
