We’re happy to announce that the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ (IEEE) annual International Symposium on Product Compliance Engineering (ISPCE 2023) will feature a session from Angela Lambert, our product safety and warnings expert here at Clarion Safety Systems.
ANSI and ISO Expertise at ISPCE
ISPCE, which is the flagship conference of IEEE’s Product Safety Engineering Society, will be held in Dallas, TX from May 1-3, 2023. Angela’s session at the conference will cover on-product warnings, including topics about understanding the role of safety labels in product liability, key standards and requirements for labels based on ANSI Z535.4 and ISO 3864-2, and emerging trends and issues in risk management.
At Clarion Safety, Angela heads our standards compliance initiatives. She has more than fifteen years of experience in the safety and manufacturing industry, helping product safety engineers solve their warnings and liability challenges. Angela is also actively involved at the leadership level in the ANSI and ISO standards. She is chair of ANSI Z535.1 Safety Colors, a member of the ANSI Z535 Committee, the U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 145 and of the U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 283, and is the liaison representative from ISO/TC 145 to ISO/TC 283.
An Analysis on ANSI Z535 and ISO 3864-2
Specifically, our presentation which will be held on May 1st, will explain the significance of the ANSI Z535 and ISO 3864-2 standards, as well as explore the latest updates and what they mean for today’s safety and risk professionals. Of special significance is that ANSI Z535 was partially republished in 2022, and will continue to be updated this year in 2023, marking the first time many of the standards have changed in over a decade. Additionally, development of a new sub-standard, ANSI Z535.7, is underway, focusing on trends in digitalization and automation.
Along with Angela’s educational session on ANSI and ISO for on-product warnings, this year’s program at ISPCE focuses on several key areas for safety and engineering professionals, including keynote presentations with various topics on:
Batteries & Energy Storage Systems Regulatory Compliance Cybersecurity EMC Compliance Emerging Technologies & Innovations Ethics Medical Devices Global Hazardous Locations Global Market Access & Management Hazard Based Safety Engineering Directives & Consumer Protection.
