Government launches new strategy to protect consumers and businesses 'that do the right thing'

Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy 725 x 500

Plans to strengthen the UK’s world-leading product safety regime have been set out today (10 August 2018) by the government’s newly established Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS).

- Plan forms part of the government’s modern Industrial Strategy, building confidence in the system delivering the highest level of protection for consumers and helping British businesses to thrive

- Strategy will also help protect responsible businesses from unfair competition posed by unsafe products

OPSS was established in January to help keep consumers safe and enforce the UK’s strict safety laws and the strategy and delivery plan launched today sets out a bold programme of action to enhance the UK’s ability to identify risks, protect consumers and co-ordinate large scale product recalls and repairs.
