Consumer Protection

Ards and North Down Borough Council is bringing a new Code of Practice to the attention of all manufacturers, importers and distributors of non-food consumer products in the Borough. This Code of Practice provides practical guidance to support businesses dealing with the notification and recall of unsafe products and other corrective actions. 

The code recommends the preparation of a Product Safety Incident Plan (PSIP) by businesses in advance of its actual need, to enable businesses to act quickly when an unsafe product arises. To find out more, please download the letter below.
