In the promotional marketing industry, it is important to stress the value of compliancy for many reasons. First and foremost, “It’s the law,” states Richard Massey, in charge of Regulatory Affairs at SnugZ USA. “We ensure that we have done what we can to make our products safe.”
It is essential to create a safe environment for our employees and our customers. In doing so, we are one of the only lanyard, personal care, and food and gift facilities to be Quality Certification Alliance (QCA) accredited. We meet the QCA high standards for quality, are compliant, and socially responsible.
According to the QCA website, the “QCA Accreditation is a process of comprehensive validation that confirms a promotional products supplier has processes in place intended to detect and deter any non-compliant product from entering the marketplace. The QCA Certification Process harmonizes the ever-increasing array of compliance tools, identifies the most rigorous standards, measures these standards, and continuously revises and updates the measures and methodology to reflect evolving concerns. Accreditation / Certification is granted to companies who complete an independent third-party audit and comply with stringent standards, which are based upon a combination of state and national laws, international standards and industry-accepted best practices that are recognized for their strength and effectiveness by QCA Accredited companies, the promotional products industry and end-user clients.”
Having this accreditation of compliancy guarantees our customers a quality product they can trust. Our products have a low risk for potential recall issues, in turn, reducing cost and wasted time. This also allows us to improve products and standards within the industry, while making a positive environmental impact.
We don’t think compliancy is a choice; it’s a professional responsibility.
