The National Audit Office has published its report into the UK’s product safety system which references the work of the Office for Product Safety and Standards. The NAO’s report recognises the significant progress made in the three years since OPSS was established. We will use its recommendations as we develop a new regulatory framework to protect consumers and ensure businesses understand their legal obligations. The Government’s top priority is to keep people safe which is why OPSS is leading efforts to ensure goods sold in the UK meet some of the strictest safety laws in the world.
The report Protecting consumers from unsafe products is available on the NAO website.
