There are ever changing regulations and compliance can be challenging and costly to manage. We have already met with Brands, Importers, Retailers, Manufacturers and Material Suppliers and have had constructive discussions regarding alignment of testing protocols and today’s challenges across the different tiers of the supply chain. As a result, SGS has been able to gather very useful feedback in the efforts to help sustain chemical testing costs.
The Tiered Testing industry initiative is founded and reliant on cooperation. It is paramount that it be developed together across the Supply Chain and we therefore welcome you and your company to take part in the further development and discussions of the initiative. Please find below the agenda for the meeting:
- Identifying challenges within the industry and how SGS can support your business in those areas, in particular with mould prevention
- Tiered Testing Industry Initiative the outline and feedback gathered from the previous summits
- Industry Expert Panel, who will be drawing up aligned protocols for testing supported by SGS
- Timeline, Goals and Objectives
We encourage all tiers of the Supply Chain to be represented. It would therefore be paramount to have representatives of your current Supply Chain at the meeting. Please forward this invitation to your supply chain and encourage them to join us.
Please register by the 10th of September if you will be available to attend. We encourage and welcome any input you might have. Please forward additional comments on the agenda, your location and notice about your attendance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
