New ISO Product Safety Standard

Are you an OEM (original equipment manufacturer)? Do you procure from an OEM?

A new product safety standard has been published by ISO which will have a large impact on all global manufacturers and companies that buy from them.

ISO 10377 – Consumer Product Safety – Guidelines for Suppliers, requires retailers and OEM’s to trace parts and components of a product through the supply chain to determine exactly where a fault occurred. It applies to all consumer products except foodstuffs, drugs and cars.

The standard intends to build safety and accountability into a product and serve as a benchmark for eliminating hazards that would be unacceptable during product use.
