The Seminar will focus on how the safety of aerosol dispensers is regulated in Great Britain and how these regulations are enforced and plans for the future. We are pleased to announce that we have two speakers from the UK Government’s Office of Products Safety and Standard (OPSS) and one from Hertfordshire Trading Standards. The topics that will be covered include:
- How the aerosols dispensers’ regulations fit into the current UK product safety regime as it applied to Great Britain and Northern Ireland and how this is likely to change in coming years
- The on-going broader review of the UK’s General Product Safety regime
- Prism the new risk assessment tool for product for managing faulty products on the market
- How Trading Standards currently enforce the regulation
- The Primary Authority Relationship, how they work with BAMA and how companies can benefit from having their own Primary Authority relationship.
Our three speakers are:
- Shola Akinyamoju of OPSS, who our contact with the UK’s Product Safety Regulator will talk about how the aerosols dispensers’ regulations fit into the current UK product safety regime as it applied to Great Britain and Northern Ireland and how this is likely to change in coming years. Shola will also give an update on the on-going broader review of the UK’s Product Safety regime and the recent consultation of weights and measures.’
- Emma Hope of Herts Trading Standards will talk about how they enforce the UK product safety regulations a local and National level. He will also cover the importance of the Primary Authority relationship in the smooth running of this enforcement, how Herts trading standards use the one they have with BAMA, and why it would be beneficial for companies to have a Primary Authority relationship with their local trading standards.
- Katherine Forrest of OPSS who will talk about PRISM, the new product safety risk assessment methodology that they have developed to enable regulators assess product safety risk to inform corrective actions if the product is found to present an intolerable risk. PRISM builds on the EU Safety Gate system and aims to use data to improve company risk assessments risk assessment and improve outcomes.
The programme will include a Panel Q&A session at the end.
