2018-03-13 08:00:00 2018-03-15 17:00:00 America/New_York CPSC Staff Joined by European Commission Conducting Free Product Safety Training for Buyers & Sourcing Professionals

CPSC staff and staff of the European Commission, in cooperation with the American Chambers of Commerce in Shanghai and Guangzhou, will conduct free product safety training for buyers and sourcing professionals buying apparel, electronics, and toys manufactured in China. The training event will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on March 13, 2018, at the Shanghai Marriott City Center, and on March 15, 2018, at the LN Garden Hotel Guangzhou in China. 

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-China buyers and sourcing professionals who purchase consumer products for major importers located in the United States and the European Union.  Many will be direct employees of U.S. or European 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.  Distinguished speakers from Toys Association and National Retail Federation will participate as cooperating organizations.  English-Chinese interpretation will be provided.
