Recommended Posts

The Office for Product Safety & Standards (OPSS) is part of the Department for Business Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). We regulate a wide range of products with a focus on their safety and integrity. This means protecting people and places, enabling business to thrive and empowering consumers to make good choices.

Digital technologies such as digital twins are becoming more prevalent and integrated into everyday life and recently the technology is being developed and integrated into lower cost, high volume assets that fall within the consumer product space.

The aim of this research project is to strengthen our knowledge and understanding of digital twins and other relevant digital innovations including how we should position ourselves in order to maximise the benefits and opportunities of this technology, such as enhancing consumer safety and/or reduce regulatory burdens on businesses (e.g. with product testing). The research should also examine commercialisation of this technology in the consumer product sector and forecast the direction it will take over the next few years.

Please follow this link to find out more about the project proposal and please forward this on to people who would be interested to register for the pre-market engagement event.

If you would like to register for the event – please email me to confirm your attendance.

The event is designed to provide details of the aims of the research, alongside the context and anticipated programme of work. It will also provide an opportunity to ask any questions before the tender goes live.

The event will be held virtually over Microsoft Teams on 11th November 2022 at 10:00 – 12:00.
