Recommended action for organizations
regarding product safety and conformity, 1st edition, November 2018
extracts from the preface
……Companies have to deal not only with new customers and their cultures but also with changing customer expectations and the country-specific laws and requirements that apply to the products. Furthermore, the sensitivity and connectedness of product users and authorities, and public discussions on the issue of product integrity have increased significantly.….

The answer to this question is subject to a certain level of complexity that results, among other things, from the number of parties involved (authorities, product users, OEM, suppliers) and their various requirements.……
This volume provides recommendations for implementation. ……
……The objective of this volume is to create a better understanding of product safety and product conformity – combined under the term “product integrity” for the purposes of this volume.
