The number of product recalls has been growing steadily over the past decade, with millions of non-food products recalled each year by manufacturers and suppliers on a voluntary or mandatory basis. The product categories affected are quite diverse, ranging from electric and electronic devices, toys and childcare equipment, to sports equipment, bicycles, household appliances and automobiles.
The best thing about product recalls is not having one. Considering the rising popularity of Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs) as a means of transport and the complex regulatory landscape, product compliance and safety aspects should be high on the agenda of LEV producers, importers and distributors.
That is why LEVA-EU hosts a webinar on some best practices and insights in the field of product recalls, that could help you mitigate the risk of having a recall or ease the burden in case you have a recall. Topics include:
- How can you mitigate the risk of having a recall?
- How to be prepared for a recall?
- How to ease the burden of a recall?
- How to manage a recall?
