Ben DeVito, global sales and technical director Softlines at TÜV SÜD has been named as vice chair of Product Safety Committee at American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA).

AAFA is a national trade association representing apparel, footwear and other sewn products companies and their suppliers.

“AAFA's Product Safety Council (PSC) was formed to discuss best practices in chemical management and navigate current and future product safety regulations,” Nate Herman, AAFA vice president of international trade said.

“With his 25 years of experience in apparel production and sourcing, Ben DeVito has lived all over the United States and is now settled in Central Pennsylvania,” a TUV SUD press release stated.

As global sales and technical director Softlines at TÜV SÜD, DeVito assists manufacturers and retailers to comply with global regulations and to implement QA and compliance programs.

“I look forward to supporting the AAFA in its mission to improve product safety for our consumers and also represent the industry on important safety issues,” Ben DeVito also said.

“As an expert in product safety, quality, and compliance, Ben has been a frequent contributor to the group and our programs, and we're delighted he is now serving as vice-chair of the PSC,” Herman added.

Devito's role will be to serve the committee and support the chairman by advancing the AAFA's agenda.

This includes representing the industry on product safety matters, leading various committee projects and assisting to educate and train committee members. (AR)
