to be held in conjunction with ​the

European Commission's International Product Safety Week Activities

​November 12-13, 2018 

​Brussels, Belgium 

​ICPHSO returns to Brussels to hold its one and a half-day International Symposium during the EC's International Product Safety Week (November 12-15, 2018).  The theme of this years International Symposium is, "Alignment and Inclusion in a Divergent World."  The concepts of alignment and inclusion can be interepreted broadly.  The theme is intended to encompass both diversity in the context of safety considerations, and broader representation issues.  The International Symposium will highlight how the product safety community, and more specifically ICPHSO through increased focus on inclusion and diversity when addressing product safety issues can bring benefit to consumers everywhere.  The Call for Presentation is being issued and proposals are due by June 29, 2018.  We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to contribute to the product safety conversation taking place in Brussels.  Translation services will be provided for all sessions on November 12-13, 2018.


Call For Presentations:  Now Open -   Deadline June 29, 2018
