CPSC staff and staff of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, in cooperation with the American Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam, will conduct free product safety training for buyers and sourcing professionals buying apparel, furniture, and toys manufactured in Vietnam. The training event will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the New World Hotel Saigon in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.

Buyers who source consumer products for eventual retail sale are key decision makers at the intersection of the production and retail value chains.  They have the power to ensure products purchased for their companies or clients meet all safety requirements but too often, they lack the knowledge to fulfill their role.  Product Safety Training for Buyers & Sourcing Professionals can help fill that gap.  Focus is on products for children and on products that have demonstrated high risks of safety violations and hazards. 

Target groups for this training are resident-in-Vietnam buyers and sourcing professionals who purchase consumer products for major importers located in the United States and Australia.  Many will be direct employees of U.S. or Australian companies.  Other potential attendees will be from specialized firms that handle purchasing for large global retailers, as well as from small and medium sized trading companies active in the consumer product export business.  English-Vietnamese interpretation will be provided.
