Training Programs on Consumer Safety and Health

The CSHN offers countries a space for technical cooperation to prevent and/or stop, as a region, the circulation of unsafe products in their markets. Among other aspects, the CHSN has promoted and supported the creation and/or the strengthening of consumer product safety national market surveillance systems, has trained hundreds of specialists and officials and administers the only existing regional safety alert portal in the Americas. One objective of the CSHN is to contribute to the development and consolidation of national and regional systems working on strengthening products' safety and, thus protect consumer health. To achieve this goal it is necessary to deepen the awareness and training of relevant officials in the countries of the region about the importance of market surveillance and on the impact that the consumption of safe goods have on the health of the population.
