The Footwear Distributors and Retailers of America (FDRA) just made staying on top of global legal requirements a bit easier with the premier of Globalfootweartesting.com.
The website serves as a one-stop-shop, footwear-specific, Restricted Substance List (RSL), allowing compliance professionals with a FDRA membership to look up crucial information to make sure shoes are within regulation. The substances listed are tiered based on which companies should prioritize.
Through the website, FDRA members can search by chemical restrictions, necessary physical tests and access the global legal requirements catalog.
The website also allows users to e-mail information from the website to factories or testing labs.
At the upcoming edition of Sourcing at MAGIC, attendees will be able to witness the factory of the future right on the show floor.Read more
