AAFA council to focus on product safety regulations & issues

Oct '08
Today, the American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) announced the launch of its new Product Safety Council, which will focus on product safety regulations and issues. These issues previously fell primarily under the purview of AAFA's Childrenswear Marketing Division, which will be folded into the new council. All AAFA member companies are invited and encouraged to designate an employee to participate on the Council.

“While product safety has always been a concern for all AAFA members,” explained Kevin M. Burke, president and CEO, AAFA, “recent events in other consumer product industries, and the resulting legislation that also impacts the apparel and footwear industries, spotlighted the need for a dedicated committee for these issues.”

AAFA's Product Safety Council will provide new tools such as: an implementation calendar and summary for recent product safety legislation, a guide to Consumer Product Safety Commission standards effecting the footwear and apparel industries, and more. The Council will also host timely product safety issue seminars in the U.S. and around the world.

“Through AAFA's 15 committees and divisions, members guide the association's policies and actions,” said Burke. “The formation of the Product Safety Council is just another instance of AAFA members leading the industry.”

Featuring a discussion of current product safety legislation and of the future of the committee, the first Product Safety Council meeting will be held December 3 in Washington, DC.
