November 2021 – update

The OPSS has published its response to the consultation and you can read it here. We are also pleased to see the new campaign from OPSS which has been launched to raise awareness about buying products online.

June 2021

With help from a number of our manufacturing members OATA has submitted a response to the UK Product Safety Review launched recently by the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS).

This is an important role of a trade association – to watch for opportunities to ensure the collective voice of an industry is heard on issues of concern. We know individual companies do not have the time or resources to have their say so that’s where a trade association like OATA can research and write submissions so that concerns are highlighted.

You can read OATA’s response here.
