Join Jessica Pyle for the Art of Testing. We frequently talk about the requirements for compliance testing related to consumer promotional products,but what does it entail? What kinds of testing need to be done? What are the different types? How are tests performed and which one is best for your product and/or situation? This session delves into the complexity of product safety testing for heavy metals, how it affects the products you make and sell, how specific types of testing are done and the differences between them. This is a must-attend session for suppliers and a huge opportunity for distributors looking to stay on the right side of compliance. This session qualifies as an "elective" under the Product Safety Aware Program.
