Webinar on Ways of Managing Risks and Reducing Testing Costs with XRF Technology

This live, 60 minute webinar, co-sponsored with the Fashion Jewelry and Accessories Trade Association (FJATA ) will provide an overview of CPSIA, Prop. 65 requirements, ASTM Children's Standards, ASTM Adult's Standards, Green Chemistry compliance issues, and an introduction to the theory and practice of how XRF supports QA/QC functions.

This webinar will highlight the benefits of using XRF as a screening tool for supply chain quality control, and discusses managing risks of using XRF as a screening tool. It will discuss:

  • Compliance issues (CPSIA and Prop 65)
  • ASTM Children's and Adult Standards
  • Green chemistry compliance issues
  • Basic theory and use of X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) as a screening tool

Be Prepared For The Increase In Regulatory Enforcement

Recently, there has been a substantial increase in enforcement in regulatory compliance, with a focus on consumer products, and the fashion jewelry industry as one of the main targets. We will present the regulation updates and show how X-Ray fluorescence (XRF) technology can help you manage your regulation risk while lowering your testing costs.

Recent changes to the CPSIA, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, and other consumer product regulations are having a significant impact on fashion jewelry products. The increased enforcement and compliance requirements for this law create the need for fashion jewelry manufacturers, as well as brand holders, to become properly educated about its impact.

If you are in the jewelry business and work in corporate management; product design & development; HS&E; regulatory affairs; engineering; or responsible for product compliance/testing/certification, this webinar will increase your understanding of regulatory compliance in the US.
