De-Briefing: 7th CEOC – ETICS – EUROLAB – IFIA International Safety Conference How to ensure product safety in a global market?

On 8 November 2016, CEOC, ETICS, EUROLAB and IFIA organised the 7th International Safety Conference at The Stanhope Hotel in Brussels. This year’s conference focused on the question of how to ensure product safety in a global market. The event brought together more than 100 participants from the European institutions, consumer, retailer and industry associations and the TIC sector to address issues related to consumer product safety and to shape solutions with all the actors involved.

The event started with the key note speech given by James Woudhuysen (Professor of Forecasting and Innovation) on ‘Key consumer issues, 2016-21, and what to do about them’.

The two highlights of the event – the results of the 2016 Market Study and the Present & Future e-compliance model in the electrotechnical sector – was followed by a panel discussion moderated by Laura Shields (Director, The Media Coach). Representatives from the European Commission, TIC sector, industry and market surveillance organisations participated in the discussion.
