Webinar Description

This is an on-demand, encore presentation of a previously broadcast webinar. The price is discounted to reflect the time passed since it was live.

Working effectively with testing labs is becoming increasingly vital for consumer product companies. That trend is due to many factors like additional regulatory mandates in recent years and the increasing complexity of the global supply chain.

Thus it is essential for manufacturers, retailers and importers to understand how to choose labs, to keep tabs on them, to know results can be trusted, to avoid common mistakes, to set realistic expectations, and more.

Product Safety Letter has assembled a panel of top experts, each with decades of experience in making sure company-lab relationships are based on cooperation, trust, and frank honesty. These knowledgeable professionals will give you their first-hand, from-the-trenches insights.
