The seminars, delivered at Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services laboratory in Warrington, will cover topics including the revised EU Toy Safety Directive, the safety of electrical toys and the safety of nursery products. The firm also proposes a session on the REACH Directive.

Additionally, the company’s environmental and social technical experts will deliver courses on new issues such as ecodesign and corporate social responsibility.

The educational programme, delivered by market-sector experts, will be of value to all levels of personnel, from trainee technologists through to buyers and designers. Delegates will have the opportunity to visit Bureau Veritas’ laboratory, see tests performed and discuss safety issues with technical consultants.

Jonathon Thackray, Bureau Veritas, said: “Manufacturers and distributors need to stay up to date with the ever growing plethora of standards affecting the consumer goods market.

"This is especially true for companies trading on a global scale as they have to deal with a jungle of national and regional regulations. Our new seminar programme will help professionals understand what they need to do to comply with the current legislations.

“Our programme does not only cover quality assurance; it does also approach environmental and social questions, with sessions on Ecodesign and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), since we are aware that there is an increasing demand from consumers and retailers for greener and more ethical products.
