Preventing Recalls & Product Liability in New Product Development
More Trainings by this Expert
Some products in specific industries, such as consumer products, automotive, food and pharmaceutical have to be designed and manufactured in compliance to that industry's regulatory requirements, which is wrongly viewed as the only safety requirement the manufacturer needs to really focus on in design, but such regulatory requirements offer no guarantee or assurance that the product is then 'safe'.
The Legal community looks at regulatory requirements as a 'minimum requirement', and fully expects the manufacturer to not only comply with voluntary and regulatory requirements, but go above and beyond any such requirements to ensure their products will be safe and reliable for their intended use, as well as considering 'foreseeable misuse' hazards. There are unique elements related to the design of any specific product that the regulatory agencies aren't going to ever review or be aware of, or have the capability of recognizing, to determine if those elements could potentially be harmful. This is what the government agencies and Legal community fully expect the manufacturer to determine.
Why should you Attend:One of the first requirements in this proactive effort is for today's manufacturing executive teams to learn how to perform Design Reviews and Product Safety - Hazard Analysis Reviews in order to help identify and prevent the possibilities of launching a defective designed product. Almost every manufacturing company already feels they're properly conducting design reviews, only to find that they're not even coming close. And they don't understand the difference between Design Reviews and Product Safety Reviews, nor did anyone probability ever receive formal training in Hazards Analysis and Risk Assessments.
