Open industry. All apparel and footwear industry professionals, regardless of AAFA membership, are encouraged to participate. Product safety, compliance, regulation, quality assurance, green chemistry, and chemical management professionals and beyond are invited to join us. This program is closed to press.


AAFA will host this heritage program in-person, but moving the date from the traditional time of early February to late March. Product safety, quality, and compliance have grown more complex across the supply chain as new materials and innovation are added into production. Addressing regulations from the federal level down to the state and county level along with technology and research advances, this program supports the development of a comprehensive risk-based approach to unify and meet global operations that meet legislated standards across compliance systems and protocols. Co-located with this conference, AAFA’s Environmental and Social Responsibility Committee meetings provide attending members with expanded resources and alignment. This will be AAFA's only product safety and compliance seminar in 2022.
