(PRESS RELEASE) GENEVA, 12-Jul-2019 — /EuropaWire/ — SGS launches its new ‘Product Recalls’ digital platform. It is an online database that provides instant access to the latest unsafe product notifications (non-food) from the EU and USA to consumer goods manufacturers and retailers.
The platform which launches today (July 12), creates a searchable database of all unsafe product notifications compiled by official surveillance authorities operating in the European Union (RAPEX and RASFF) and United States (CPSC and FDA). Later this year, data from Australia and Canada will be incorporated into the site.
“As an industry leader we’re delighted to offer this ground-breaking new digital asset that is accurate, comprehensive, trustworthy and timely. In bringing together the latest unsafe product notifications from four governmental sources, this platform provides pertinent and insightful data that will help retailers and manufacturers understand and manage risk within their own organizations,” commented Andy Gibbard, Global Head of Digital Marketing & Communication, SGS.
The digital platform allows users to search data by Notifying Country, Product Category, Risk Type, Country of Origin, or by Source, i.e. surveillance authority (CPSC, FDA, RAPEX or RASFF).
