The product safety is particularly important for babies as the most vulnerable group of consumers. It cannot be ignored that unsafe baby care articles are causing every year deaths and serious injuries. Our training sessions aim to raise the awareness of product safety among manufacturers and sellers, provide essential and practical advice to avoid product safety incidents and that babies will be better protected through our initiative.
