Unfortunately, supply chains are not always perfect, and sometimes, a recall is required. The apparel and textile industry is no different. Understanding the changes to the regulatory environment and learning from past mistakes can help prevent future recall from occurring. In this webinar, Simon Tse, UL’s Technical Manager for Softlines, will discuss recent recall examples, some common failures to avoid, and provide a regulatory review to help you stay up to date on the most recent quality control changes for the apparel and textile industry.
