The International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO)®.
Founded in 1993, ICPHSO is a non-profit, volunteer-driven, and membership-based organization dedicated to providing forums for the exchange of ideas and
information on health and safety issues related to consumer products that are manufactured and marketed in the global marketplace.
ICPHSO’s unique non-partisan and inclusive approach to product health and safety dialogues draws participation from government agencies, manufacturers, industry and trade
associations, professional services firms, academia, standards developers, consumer advocates, retailers, testing organizations, and interested individuals.
Because product health and safety issues transcend geographic boundaries, ICPHSO encourages participation from interested parties around the globe. ICPHSO’s efforts in this
regard are reflected in the diversity of participants, who today represent nearly 30 economies around the world.
