How does the EPC benefit consumers?
The EPC helps provide consumers with better quality and safer products, since it allows stores to track products back to their source. If a toy or tyres have to be recalled, the EPC can be used to help trace the cause of the defect and also to find out where all similar products have been shipped to. Consumers benefit in countless other ways, too. Pharmaceutical companies are considering the use of the EPC to help protect consumers against counterfeit and unsafe medicinal products. The EPC provides shoppers with more product information and better warranties and it can help keep shelves stocked with your favourite products and guarantee the freshness of food.
