Welcome to
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.

Call for Presentations

Deadline Extended

Due to summer vacation schedules, we have decided to extend our deadline for accepting presentation proposals for our 2015 Annual Meeting & Training Symposium which will be held in Orlando, Florida, from February 23-26, 2015.  The new dates are listed below. We invite you to submit a proposal for a presentation, workshop, round table or keynote address. Proposals submitted by the August 1st deadline will receive full consideration; consideration of proposals submitted after the deadline is at the discretion of the ICPHSO Executive Committee.

Presentations must be non-commercial in nature and pertain to topics of interest to the worldwide consumer product safety community.

The Symposium is a bit different this year-we will be offering tutorials on various product safety topics Monday afternoon, February 23, followed by the main conference February 24-26. Please be sure to indicate if your proposal is for a tutorial or the main conference; you may submit proposals in each area if you wish.

The "Call for Presentations" forms are noted below and are in both Word and pdf formats.  If you have a version of Adobe Acrobat that allows you to save your pdf file, it will be most convenient to use our pdf form, save and then email to us (our preferred method). As alternatives, you may also use the Word version and email or fax a handwritten completed form to us.

The Symposium Planning Committee will review all submitted proposals. The timeline is as follows:

  • Deadline for submissions – August 1, 2014
  • Round 1 proposal decisions – August 19, 2014
  • Final selection and communication to submitters – September 12, 2014

Please send your completed proposal to Paul Rossmann, ICPHSO Association Manager either via e-mail to p.rossmann@ichpso.org, or by fax to 414-768-8001. 

I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your continued support of ICPHSO!
