The Baby Products Association has partnered with Nottinghamshire Trading Standards to provide an Assured Advice Scheme, which means that companies can receive advice about their products’ safety, for example; whether it meets the requirements of the relevant safety standard with an interpretation of these if required provided by the Nottingham division and which will be upheld by Trading Standards departments in England and Wales, and gives a firm grounds for defence in court.
Julie Milne of the trade association, explains: “This a part of the Association’s Primary Authority Partnership and members can ask advice about standardisation or regulatory issues they may have – and this is across the whole range of child care articles. This advice can be given as Assured Advice which is published on the Trading Standards Information Hub and publicly accessible. Once published, it cannot be contradicted by other Trading Standards offices or officers and can be used to demonstrate a company’s due diligence or even in its defence in court should it be required.”
