VDA Product Safety and Conformity Representative (PSCR)

This course is delivered by Industry Forum

VDA certificate of qualification.

About this course

Every organisation within the automotive supply chain is obligated to ensure the safety and conformity of its products. Across the world, current legal local and international statutes on product integrity must be observed, and over and above this the justifiable safety expectations of the general public must be met.

With products clearly “unsafe” in the market, or whose conformity to legal requirements is questionable, those responsible are obliged to initiate the necessary actions.

In order to be aware of and to understand the many demands of the role of a product safety representative, comprehensive information and qualification are necessary. This is the aim of this two-day qualification: it is specifically geared to the requirements in the participants’ daily practice. In five modules the central topics of product integrity are explored, and competence as a product safety representative is developed.

Certification: After passing the exam at the end of this course, the participants will receive a qualification certificate. 

Who should attend

Automotive executives and personnel who are to be deployed as or already are product safety representatives.
