Feedback form is now closed.

This session looks at how product safety issues are addressed when dealing with 'innovative' products which set themselves apart from current products on the market. The panel will lead a discussion on the safety considerations that could be made from the product design/development stage to the product launch including how safety risks could be assessed by looking at different types of 'innovative' products. The session will also discuss the challenges and lessons that can be learned from the manufacturer's experience as well as those products which were launched but subsequently recalled.
