2024 Product Safety & Compliance Seminar

Join AAFA as the Product Safety & Compliance Seminar returns to Long Beach, CA!

Wednesday, February 14 - Thursday, February 15, 2024
Long Beach, CA


Join AAFA as the Product Safety & Compliance Seminar returns to Long Beach, CA! The seminar is held in conjunction with AAFA's Social Responsibility Committee and Environmental Committee Meetings, kicking off with a Networking Happy Hour on Wednesday, February 14, 2024, followed by the full-day Seminar on Thursday, February 15, 2024 at the Westin Long Beach. Register by January 10 to save $100! Separate registration is required for each of the committee meetings. 


All apparel and footwear industry professionals, regardless of AAFA membership, are encouraged to participate. Product safety, compliance, regulatory, quality assurance, and chemical management professionals from entry level to executive level are invited to join us. This program is closed to press attendance and coverage. 


Product safety, quality, and compliance have grown more complex across the supply chain as new materials and innovation are incorporated into production. Addressing regulations from the federal level down to the state and county level, this program supports the development of a comprehensive risk-based approach to unify global operations with legislative standards across compliance systems and protocols. Co-located with this seminar, AAFA’s Environmental and Social Responsibility Committee meetings provide attending members with expanded resources and alignment.

This event is a crucial part of AAFA’s focus on galvanizing the industry to build upon strong supply chain and sourcing commitments to result in safe products so that members, consumers, workers, and the environment will thrive.
