Virtual Series: Fall Footwear E-Learning Episode 2

Join episode 2 of our new virtual series as we discuss footwear issues in a 4 episode e-learning series!

Virtual Learning Series Announced!

AAFA will present one of our heritage programs, the Footwear Workshop, normally hosted at New Balance, as a virtual e-learning series in 2020!

Join us for our new Fall Footwear E-Learning Series where we will cover sustainability, product safety & compliance, the changing retail environment, and trade policy. These four episodes will be released over four weeks this fall! 

Mitigating safety and compliance risks in production gets your product into consumer’s hands faster. Having foresight into areas where failures happen and understanding how to anticipate those challenges helps you control your safety protocols.  

This episode will cover:
Recalls – what can you do to minimize your risk?
Review of common failures to be aware of and how to avoid them
Regulatory updates – U.S. states, EU, Prop 65

Seemanta Mitra, Technical Leader – Global Softlines, UL
