      PLENARY SESSION # 2: NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND PRODUCT SAFETY

      This session will help start a meaningful discussion within the international product safety community about the practical implications of a world in which products can “learn” and change their behaviour, perhaps without direct active input from the original manufacturer. The session is intended to provide an introduction to the technologies, and to provide practical insight into the possibilities for the technology, the way it is already in place around us now, and the opportunities, risk, and policy challenges raised by these rapid developments for the management of consumer product safety.

      PLENARY SESSION #4: TIME IS NOT ON YOUR SIDE: COMPRESSION WITHIN THE PRODUCT LIFE CYCLE

      Technological advances are speeding up; to be competitive, innovative products require compressed product development timelines that challenge current safety processes and tools. A panel of manufacturing and product safety experts will identify the challenges of compressing product development timelines and discuss the need for innovative solutions ensure products are designed and manufactured to be safe.

      PLENARY SESSION # 5: THE SAFETY JOURNEY IN A PRODUCT'S LIFECYCLE

      This session looks at how product safety issues are addressed when dealing with 'innovative' products which set themselves apart from current products on the market. The panel will lead a discussion on the safety considerations that could be made from the product design/development stage to the product launch including how safety risks could be assessed by looking at different types of 'innovative' products. The session will also discuss the challenges and lessons that can be learned from the manufacturer's experience as well as those products which were launched but subsequently recalled.
