Product Safety Compliance Solutions
We offer a comprehensive collection of global proposed, enacted and amended laws and regulations covering general product safety and those focused on specific products.
Why Product Safety Matters More Than Ever
A paramount consideration for manufacturers placing products on the market is the safety of their products. Laws and regulations in countries worldwide promote the principle that only safe products should be placed on the market, and set out legal obligations on safe design and production of products, as well as appropriate warnings and labels, provision of information, reporting obligations and corrective actions.
The EU boasts a mature framework when it comes to product safety providing for product specific legislation for certain categories of products e.g. electrical appliances, machinery, and gas appliances. Medicine and food have their own regimes. For other consumer products the General Product Safety Directive (GPSD), and from 13 December 2024 General Product Safety Regulation (GPSR), provide rules where no specific sectoral laws exist and provide general safety requirements for non-food consumer products.
Unsafe Products & Risks of Non-Compliance
Non-compliance can have serious implications for companies from product recalls and fines to, potentially, culminating in criminal prosecution.
Business Benefits of Compliance
Uninterrupted market access with more opportunities to expand that market.
