PPAI’s inaugural Product Safety Summit on August 10 in Denver, Colorado, brings government officials, legal expert and industry professionals together for a full day of education on pressing product safety issues, their business implications and the challenges of compliance. The Summit is also an opportunity to address ways and examine case studies of turning a cost-burden into a strategic advantage.
The Product Safety Summit has lined up a diverse roster of experts to discuss the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), safety regulatory matters, industry challenges and potential solutions. Mary Toro, director of Regulatory Enforcement Division at the Office of Compliance and Field Operations with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), will deliver the Summit’s keynote presentation, as well as remain a panelist throughout the event. Also speaking are Jennifer Karmonick, a senior associate in Arnold & Porter LLP’s product liability and mass tort practice group, and co-chairs of the Product Safety Summit, Gene Geiger, MAS, CEO of Geiger (UPIC: geiger), and Rick Brenner, CEO of Prime Resources (UPIC: PRIME), among others.
The agenda includes CPSIA breakout sessions and a hands-on evaluation of product safety challenges. A panel discussion titled “Business Implications of Product Safety” will address two of the most frequently asked product safety questions: What are the business implications of product safety and how can a cost-burden be turned into a strategic advantage?
