Consumer Product Safety



Consumer Product Safety - all that glitters isn’t gold – and if it looks too good to be true then it probably is

This webinar will take a look at real everyday consumer products that we purchased on-line.  We’ll check the general quality, see if they meet basic electrical safety requirements and conduct some EMC testing.  So, if you want real world insights about consumer products readily for sale today then you should watch this.  In this insightful video you’ll see first hand how we go about checking for basic safety, how we perform basic product testing and explanations about what we uncover.  You might be surprised and shocked by what we find!  So, if you’re selling consumer products, involved in market surveillance activities or if you’re in the market to buy then you should join us.
