Participation of Neven Mimica, Member of the EC, in the Icphso 2014 International Symposium
Neven Mimica, Member of the EC in charge of Consumer Policy, participated in the opening session "Regulators working together in a changing world" of the 10th International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organisation (Icphso) International Symposium, in the framework of the International Product Safety Week (IPSW) 2014. Every 2 years, policy makers, industry, consumer organisations and many others from across the world gathered to discuss how to cooperate in order to reinforce product safety.
The aim of the International Product Safety Week was to promote the safety of consumer products and international cooperation. The 2014 edition focused on strengthening international co-operation and supporting approaches such as "seamless surveillance" to strengthen consumer safety at every point of the supply chain from design to destination.
