From Intellectual Property to Sustainable Fisheries – 3 study visits where delegates can still register

cropped-063brdosslondon1.jpgOn Wednesday 12 October delegates at our conference will be attending 1 of 12 different study visits. This week we want to feature 3 of these visits where there is still time to register.

Protection of Intellectual Property

The protection of Intellectual Property (IP) is something that concerns all businesses, contributing to economic growth as well as consumer trust and security. Delegates will visit a major brand to explore with the Intellectual Property Office (IPO), Trading Standards and industry bodies the importance of design protection and innovation to business growth and confidence.

Use of standards to deliver outcomes

Visit the Regulatory Delivery labs to explore with, the British Standards Institution, UKAS (UK Accreditation Service) and the British Retail Consortium the role of standards in delivering regulatory outcomes.

Sustainable Fisheries Management

Visit Billingsgate the UK’s largest wholesale fresh fish market, selling an average of 25,000 tonnes of fish and fish products each year, approximately 40% of which comprises fish imported from abroad. This visit will explore the issues of fisheries management, sustainability and technical regulatory support with DEFRA, the Marine Management Organisation and SEAFISH accompanied by the NGO and Fisheries accreditation body the Marine Stewardship Council And fishermens organisations.
