Dr. Rick Kingston will be speaking at two events this week in Washington DC. The Consumer Health and Products association’s (CHPA) Regulatory, Scientific & Quality Conference. This event brings together industry leaders, regulatory personnel, and academia to discuss the consumer healthcare landscape. The event agenda offers key topics related to legal, regulatory and scientific, and product quality. Dr. Kingston will also be speaking at the Household Commercial Products Association’s (HCPA) Consumer Products Safety Commission Workshop. The full day conference will provide attendees with a detailed understanding of the regulations administered by the US Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
The first speaking engagement is a presentation at CHPA’s joint committees’ meetings of the RSAC, DSC & CMD. These committees deal with the areas of safety and quality. He will be speaking on the role of spontaneously reported adverse events when assessing the weight of evidence regarding a potential safety signal.
Dr. Kingston’s second presentation at HCPA’s workshop is dedicated to exploring the role and activities of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). He will be speaking on the adverse event databases used by the CPSC to monitor the safety of consumer products.
