Knowing and understanding the current and changing regulations in the early stages of product design can help you manage regulatory compliance before your product is launched on the market. This gives you the possibility of reducing market recalls that can cause hazards to final consumers and damage your brand reputation.

During this complimentary webinar, UL’s experts will share their knowledge on safety and quality upstream and answer any questions you may have.

During our session, we will also discuss the European Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles. The Strategy harmonizes numerous sustainable approaches across the textile product life cycle. Proposed actions include processes to reduce waste, extend the life of textile products, address unintentional releases of microplastics in the environment, and tighten controls on greenwashing/environmental claims.

Why should you join the training? 

Join us to learn more about:

  • Which aspects in the design phase should be taken into consideration
  • How product design links up with possible safety hazards
  • European Strategy for Sustainable and Circular Textiles
  • How UL can help
