Electrical Product Safety Conference 2022

Electrical Product Safety Conference

In its 14th year, our 2022 Electrical Product Safety Conference was held live and in person once more at Church House Westminster. The day brought together experts and leaders from across the industry to explore critical issues, solutions and insight in safer electrical products – from conception, through manufacture and production to sale.

With the title and theme of "Safe & Sustainable", we investigated key and emerging issues to ensure delegates have the right skills and capacity to thrive alongside emerging advancements and innovations in the field.

The event explored key themes and trends impacting on consumer safety and the electrical product industry, attracting a wide range of delegates - from government departments to manufacturers, retailers, importers, lawyers and test houses. The wide-lens approach meant attendees heard about the most important emerging issues of the time before drilling down into detail with experts drawn from across the field to find out how these affect industry and consumers in real life.

This year’s thought-leading event explored critical topics from sustainability to achieving sustainability in the home, what we need to know now about regulations, right to repair and much more

Over the course of the conference, industry experts shared their thoughts on the challenges ahead, as well as some key solutions being implemented and insights on opportunities for the future.
