Product Safety – Regulatory Affairs

Llandrindod Wells, Powys, Tuesday 12th June 2018
This one day workshop has been jointly arranged by Food and Farming Compliance Ltd. and The Welsh Heads of Trading Standards (Product Safety Group)
UK and EU product safety legislation places a clear obligation on market surveillance officers to carry out competent product risk assessment where any non-compliant product is detected. This risk assessment is intended to inform the discussions between the market surveillance authority and relevant economic operators with a view to agreeing the appropriate corrective actions to protect public safety. If agreement cannot be reached the market surveillance authority’s risk assessment must be robust enough to support any action which it may require economic operators to take using the powers contained in the General Product Safety Regulations, the Regulations and Accreditation of Market Surveillance Regulations and aligned harmonised regulations.
Following a number of high profile corrective actions, the way in which market surveillance authorities conduct this process is in the media and public spotlight. Market surveillance authorities must be able to demonstrate that their risk assessment process and outcomes are proportionate to the risk presented by the product or products and that they are requiring and following up the proportionate corrective actions.
