In April, Simon Tse, UL’s Technical Manager for Softlines, covered recalls, common failures, and regulatory updates for textiles and apparel. But that is only part of the softlines industry, there is still another slice to be explored, footwear. The footwear industry has experienced its own unique recalls, production miscues and regulatory updates. Like we did in April, UL’s Simon Tse, will present a free webinar, discussing recent recalls for footwear, some common failures in the marketplace, and provide a regulatory update to help you stay current with the footwear industry.
