Bureau Veritas Consumer Products Services (BVCPS), global leader in testing, inspection and certification, has developed a new mobile app that allows retailers, brands, manufacturers and importers to stay up-to-date with the latest regulatory changes and standards affecting the global consumer products supply chain.
BV Smart was designed for anyone overseeing the compliance, safety and quality of consumer products by providing access to the latest global regulatory news linked to a variety of industries including, textiles, footwear, toys, juvenile products, electronic and electrical products, chemicals, hard goods, cosmetics, food, automotive and wireless.
The app’s “News Notification” function alerts users each time a new update is published. BV Smart also features a “search” option where users can filter updates by product categories or locations around the world.
“The global regulatory landscape of consumer product requirements is ever-changing, with new or updated regulations and standards being released on a continual basis,” said Jonathon Thackray, country CEO for BVCPS U.K., Netherlands & Eastern Europe. “Understanding and being alerted of these changes is critical for our clients in order to make strategic business decisions. Our Information Resource Centre team has been successfully publishing technical bulletins for many years and they are highly valued by our clients. The idea behind the development of the BV Smart application was to enhance this added-value service by taking these regulatory alerts on a mobile platform and make them accessible anywhere and at anytime.”
BV Smart is free and available at the Apple and Microsoft Stores, as well as Google Play.
