To help licensees and licensors navigate the new regulations coming into effect around manufacturing and product safety, LIMA is offering a set of webinars to its members on February 6 and 10, respectively.

Social Compliance Programs in Manufacturing is set for February 6 from noon to 1 p.m EST, where Ian Spaulding, MD of Infact Global Partners will offer up info on social compliance programs, factory audits and give a rundown of the challenges surrounding the establishment and implementation of policies that could help improve brand risk. Infact provides social compliance, operational and productivity solutions for companies manufacturing in China. Spaulding is also the former director of global compliance for Sears Holding Corporation.

And though the new regulations for the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) scheduled to take effect on February 10 have been delayed, LIMA will still host a webinar that day, entitled ‘What Does The CPSIA Mean To Your Business?’ Also running from noon to 1:00 p.m. EST, it will be conducted by Susan DeRagon of Specialized Technology Resources (STR), which provides product testing, audit, certification, and responsible sourcing services. She’ll give her take on specifics of the new requirements and their implications for licensors, manufacturers and those in the licensing community
