Market Surveillance Initiative
January 2017 will see ALL LIA Members commit to participate in an industry-wide market surveillance initiative in an attempt to prove the quality of their products. The LIA’s ongoing market surveillance initiative will randomly select LIA member products throughout the year. Qualified laboratory engineers will put these products through their paces at the LIA’s UKAS accredited laboratory: resulting in the compilation of an annual ‘State of the Industry’ report. From January 2017, Member participation in the initiative will become a mandatory condition of LIA membership. The results, it is hoped, will help bring clarity to the industry. Giving the supply chain confidence that buying from LIA Members mean they are safe and compliant.
