Adept at meeting compliance standards and regulations, our industry is moving to a new paradigm, going beyond compliance. Building consensus, real time data, and transparent exchanges are just the beginning. AAFA will bring together brands, retailers, regulatory officials, and compliance experts as featured presenters.

Who should attend: Product safety, compliance, regulation, quality assurance, and chemical management professionals.

Please join the Product Safety Seminar reception, sponsored by OEKO-TEX, at FIT immediately following the program.
