Innovative Products and Their Stakeholders: The New Diversity - Associated Meeting - Conversation # 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This is a continuation of a discussion regarding value/requests/interest for a Safety Process Standard/Guidance for Developing Safety Criteria for Innovative Products or Innovative Features or Characteristics of Existing Products in the absence if safety standards for those innovative products or characteristics.

Product innovation is neither a product nor an industry.  Inventors, researchers, engineers create unexpected new categories of products and product features without specific ties to, or knowledge of, the consumer product industry, regulations, safety process or safety disciplines.  Innovation has a time component; a product or feature is only innovative when first introduced to the market.  Inventors may lack knowledge of a process for developing safety criteria for their innovative products or product features. 
The purpose of the meeting is continued stakeholder inclusion and discussion regarding the value/requests/interest for a safety process standard or guidance that would provide innovators with a process for determining the appropriate safety criteria for their innovative product or product characteristic.  

Discussion Meeting Open to All Interested Parties  and will take place during breakfast on Tuesday, November 12, 2018 in a conference room to be announced.
