All companies know that supply chain transparency, compliance with regulations like the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), factory safety, and ethical sourcing are no longer negotiable when it comes to your sourcing strategy. What are best practices for monitoring, managing, and streamlining these issues? NGC Software, an Associate Member of USA-ITA, recently released a white paper exploring this topic, and shared it's findings during a webinar on October 8, 2013.
Roger Mayerson, Director of Business Solutions for NGC as well as a former USA-ITA Board member and former Corporate Vice President of Target Corp., reviewed the white paper and provided "best practices" for ensuring ethical sourcing and vendor compliance. He covered topics including:
The challenges for managing ethical sourcing and factory safety.
Current and emerging legislative mandates including the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act (SB657), the Maine Toxic Chemicals in Children’s Products Law, the Washington Children’s Safe Product Act, conflict minerals reporting, and more.
Best practices for streamlining social and regulatory reporting through Vendor Compliance.
How Vendor Compliance can also help companies monitor and manage factory safety and promote socially responsible sourcing.
