Issues and Challenges
Global organizations are operating in an environment of increasing complexity and ever-changing regulatory constraints. The product safety and compliance risks involved are persistent and costly. In order to properly address these requirements, you need to utilize technology tools and best practices that create an efficient program for all parties involved.
Sourcing globally means additional issues to address regarding matters of product safety and compliance. For example, consumer protection issues are more prevalent for companies as multiple countries have introduced a variety of consumer product safety regulations. Now, more than ever, companies need to fully understand the product safety regulatory environment and develop strong compliance programs.
