SGS unvels product recalls online platform

SGS, the inspection, verification, testing and certification company, has launched a new ‘Product Recalls’ digital platform – an at-a-glance, online database that gives consumer goods manufacturers and retailers instant access to the latest unsafe product notifications from the EU and US.

The platform is able to generate 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); with data from Australia and Canada to be incorporated into the site later this year.

Andy Gibbard, Global Head of Digital Marketing & Communication, SGS, said: “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 organisations.”

The decision to launch this digital resource came in response to the growing need for manufacturers and retailers to comply with multiple international regulatory requirements, as more countries open their borders to global trade.

The online platform enables 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).
