International ISO standard published for consumer product safety, including packaging

17 October 2013

An International Standard NEN-ISO 10377 has been published providing practical guidance for suppliers to assist them in assessing and managing the safety of the consumer products they supply, including packaging – from the design of the product, to the input of raw materials, to production, to distribution, to retail and to the final product end-user and disposal. The standard describes how to identify, assess, reduce or eliminate hazards, manage risks by reducing them to tolerable levels and provide consumers with hazard warnings or instructions essential to the safe use or disposal of consumer products (World Packaging Standardisation Newsletter, October 2013).
