Focus on Compliance Management
Reducing Risk in Your Global Supply Chain
Today's retailers and brands face a sea of compliance issues that include social, environmental and product safety regulations. Missteps can be not only costly, but cause major brand damage.
In this month's Executive Issues, we get an update on the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) from an industry association - the American Apparel & Footwear Association - that has been deeply involved in lobbying Washington to apply this Act to the apparel and footwear industry in a more logical and fair manner.
We also examine the critical nature of the inherent risks in global sourcing operations and supply chains and explore how brands and private label retailers are utilizing technology as a risk mitigation strategy.
