TEXbase is sponsoring the AAFA - American Apparel & Footwear Association's Product Safety and Compliance seminar at the Fashion Institute of Technology on Jan. 29 as it continues to expand its product compliance solution.
TEXbase delivers quality assurance data management, supplier collaboration and product compliance solutions that improve product quality, time to market, and compliance.
TEXbase Compliance solutions help quality and compliance professionals meet the requirements of legislation such as the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). On the TEXbase platform, compliance can be an outcome of an end-to-end process of material and product development, specifications, testing and documentation, or a standalone solution for finished products. TEXbase generates Certificates of Compliance and provides a Compliance Certification portal for transparent compliance management.
TEXbase addresses a broad range of compliance management requirements including CPSIA, Proposition 65, Restricted Substances, Conflict Materials and Environmental. Through a comprehensive range of automation options, TEXbase securely unifies brands, retailers, suppliers and labs for material and product development, testing protocols, quality testing and compliance documentation.
TEXbase has also announced a broad, elite-level sponsorship agreement with the American Apparel and Footwear Association. TEXbase will play a leading role many AAFA events throughout 2013 focused on these critical industry challenges. Starting at the Product Safety and Compliance seminar in New York on Jan. 29, TEXbase will exhibit and demonstrate its brand and supplier solutions. TEXbase for brands protects brand equity, enhances product innovation, improves quality and reduces cost. TEXbase for suppliers and labs increases revenue and enhances client satisfaction with improved quality, collaboration and responsiveness.
"Product safety is a top priority for the U.S. apparel and footwear industry and the four million U.S. workers who strive to ensure our products are safe every day," says Kevin Burke, president and CEO, AAFA.
