API will address the ‘new normal’ and share technical insights and expertise at the ICPHSO (International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization) 2021 Annual Virtual Meeting and Symposium.
During a plenary session on ‘Practical Strategies for Business Continuity, Ongoing Product Safety, and Increased Visibility,’ Jennifer Miller, the senior director of business development, North America, for SgT (API’s sister company), will discuss the impacts of COVID-19 on supply chains and how companies should adapt to ensure business continuity and ongoing safety and quality through a ‘boots on the ground’, preventative approach.
Ensuring supply chain continuity while managing risk and disruption has become a key priority globally. Practices that ran smoothly before COVID-19 must now be reassessed, with the need to evaluate vendors and suppliers more carefully and develop processes that protect resilience. Traditional onsite product controls have been challenged by ongoing travel restrictions, budget constraints, lack of transparency, and more, compelling businesses to adapt and find new ways to safeguard continuity.
Securing product safety and quality in this ‘new normal’ requires visibility over the entire supply chain to better understand its composition and processes for greater traceability. With the help of advanced technologies and adaptable tools, teams can also remotely monitor this improved transparency to ensure product safety and quality in an unprecedented era.
