Training
CPSC Staff and Staff of the European Commission Conducting Free Product Safety Training for Buyers & Sourcing Professionals

CPSC staff and staff of the European Commission* will conduct free Product Safety Training for Buyers & Sourcing Professionals dealing in Electrical-Electric-Appliances, Apparel, and Toys in China. Buyers who source consumer products for eventual retail sale are key decision makers at the intersection of the production and retail value chains.  They have the power to ensure products purchased for their companies or clients meet all safety requirements but too often, they lack the knowledge to fulfill their role.  Product Safety Training for Buyers & Sourcing Professionals can help fill that gap.  Focus is on products for children and on products that have demonstrated high risks of safety violations and hazards.  The three training events will be hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in China.

Target groups for this training are resident-in-China buyers and sourcing professionals who purchase consumer products for major importers located in the United States and European Union.  Many will be direct employees of U.S. or E.U. companies.  Other potential attendees will be from specialized firms that handle purchasing for large global retailers, as well as from small and medium sized trading companies active in the consumer product export business.

English-Chinese interpretation will be provided.

 *European Commission presenter will cover toys only.
