International Product Safety Week, November 2016 

By Gail Greatorex

I was one of more than 250 delegates from 35 different countries who met in Brussels to discuss current issues in consumer product safety. Highlights included sessions on the online marketplace, the Internet of Things and communicating safety to Milliennials.
