Government Department Changes - RD29th Jan 2018
RD has now become the Office for Product Safety and Standards. Click here to see the launch announcement
The new organisation was set up as part of the Government response to Recommendation 1 of the working group report on product safety and recalls. It is not clear how legal metrology will fit into the new structure but as it is now the responsible Government department, we must work out how best to interact with it. The expert panel in recommendation 8 will probably be the vehicle by which we can approach this body.
