Co-operation and co-ordination among product safety regulators have taken on increased importance in recent years, particularly with respect to products that are traded internationally. The situation reached a critical point in the summer of 2007, when a number of high-profile incidents occurred, leading to the launching of an action plan hosted by the OECD Working Party on Consumer Product Safety aimed at improving information sharing within and across jurisdictions.


The case study on consumer product safety was developed by the OECD Information, Communications and Consumer Policy Division.
