Robert Anslow honoured by the British Standards Institute

Robert Anslow – managing director of both the Baby Products Association and Harrogate International Nursery Fair – has been honoured by the British Standards Institute, presented with The Wolfe Barry Medal at its annual industry awards.

The prestigious award recognises ‘outstanding and sustained impact in a life preserving area of standardisation’.

The judges remarked on Robert’s longstanding and dedicated career developing numerous British and European standards with many years as chair of a number of BSI committees, on the safety of child use and childcare products.

He has become a highly regarded and sought-after expert in child safety and has served with distinction on many other CEN and ISO committees and sub-committees.

“I would like to thank BSI for this award,” Robert commented. “It was unexpected – but I have been working in standardisation for a very long time. I remember my very first meeting as a young lad. I turned up late and the secretary at the time told me, ‘You are late, so you have been elected as chairman of the committee.’

“Now many years and numerous committees later, I am one of just three surviving members of the first CEN childcare committee and am heavily involved in International Standardisation under ISO. Child safety is hugely important to me, and I am passionate about the work that we are doing. I love being part of the committees, I enjoy working with all of the managers of the committees – it’s great fun whilst being very serious work too.”
