Motives for a PSCR organization

Everyone expects the things they use to be safe on the one hand and also to comply with legal requirements on the other.
This justified demand by customers (and also by the authorities) is met in the automotive industry with a Product Safety & Conformity Representative (formerly PSB – Product Safety Representative).
Vehicle manufacturers are thus requiring the installation of a PSCR, or PSCR organization, throughout the supply chain, as a central node to ensure product safety and compliance throughout the supply chain and product lifecycle.

The PSCR – Product Safety & Conformity Representative ensures product integrity within the company. Product integrity is the result of product safety and product conformity requirements. PSCR is therefore an important key function – across the entire product lifecycle, all areas in the company and the entire supply chain.

The PSCR -Product Safety & Conformity Representative training course systematically demonstrates how to ensure PSCR requirements are met – throughout the product lifecycle (from conception to disposal), across the supply chain, and within the organization.

A clear structuring of the content over 4 modules ensures that participants can meet the requirements of their role as PSCR in the company.

Module 1

Module 1 thus provides the basis for modules 2 and 3. In Module 1, the participant also learns why there is a demand for a PSCR on the part of the OEM, when (apparently) the legislator has clearly formulated all the corresponding requirements.

Module 2

What actually is product safety and how does it relate to product liability?
Where are the relevant regulations to be found and how are they to be understood in relation to PSCR?
Module 2 provides the basic knowledge without getting too legalistic.
The goal is not that the participants read and understand the legal texts, but that you know what the PSCR has to consider in practice.

Module 3

Module 3 deals with product conformity. As with product safety and product liability, there are also clear legal requirements that must be met in this area. The legislator knows this as “conformity of production procedures” (EU 2018/858) or “CoP” for short, whereby a further distinction is made here between CoP-Q and CoP-P.
Again, the participants will not receive legal training, but will gain the knowledge that the PSCR needs in practice.

Module 4

Module 4 brings together the knowledge from the previous modules and discusses how to deal with deviations on the products.
Participants will learn about the RAPEX portal and how to perform a risk assessment according to RAPEX.
Furthermore, the participant learns how to deal with deviations and whether and how a recall of affected products might be necessary.

In our PSCR training, the PSCR learns how to implement these requirements. This training was developed by our PSCR and is therefore naturally considered safe and compliant.

Initiated by the Volkswagen Group and as a continuation of the qualification for PSB- the Product Safety Representative, the function is essential for every company in the supply chain. And it is also imperative for vehicle manufacturers to have a defined
To be able to provide interface to supply chain PSCRs.

The 2-day PSCR training course focuses precisely on these requirements. Secure your place in the event immediately.
