OPSS seeking feedback on Product Safety Risk Assessment Methodology (PRISM).

The Risk Unit at the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) are investigating current practices in risk assessment to inform the development of the Product Safety Risk Assessment Methodology (PRISM). 

As reported in this news item, PRISM was published in December 2022.  It is for use by market surveillance and enforcement authorities in Great Britain (GB), with responsibility for consumer product safety.  The intention is to provide authorities with an updated risk assessment methodology.  This replaces the previous EU Safety Gate approach (RAPEX).

OPSS have launched a survey to collect a range of views on risk assessment.  The survey is relevant for anyone working in product safety, regardless of whether PRISM has been applied or not. 

The deadline to answer the survey is 31 July 2023.  It can be accessed here.
