NEW YORK — Companies need to be more aware than ever of the increasingly varied and complicated guidelines and stipulations that exist at the federal and state levels regarding product safety, according to speakers at a recent seminar here by the American Apparel & Footwear Association.
After a company gets through the design, costing and marketing of a product, if it is found to be improperly manufactured or contains materials that could be hazardous, a range of laws and regulations could stall its way to market or create unexpected costs and potential legal action impacting the bottom line and a brand’s reputation.
