Supply Chain Insights

Environmental Labeling Obligations for Packaging: EU and UK Rules
Packaging is an essential component of the product life cycle, but it is also becoming a significant environmental concern. As the awareness of the environmental impact of packaging waste grows, several environmental labels have been introduced to assist consumers in correctly disposing of product packaging. For brands and suppliers operating in the EU and UK markets, it is crucial to understand which labels should be included on product packaging.
Recycled Polyester (rPET) in Your Supply Chain: What You Need to Know
Polyester has been a staple in the textile industry since the 1970s. However, the negative environmental impact of polyester fabric has raised concerns among consumers. As a result, recycled polyester fabrics are gaining popularity as a more sustainable alternative.

While many brands and suppliers are making efforts to incorporate recycled polyester fabrics into their products, it remains challenging to verify the authenticity and quantity of recycled polyester in these items. This presents a dilemma for consumers who want to make informed choices.
Triman and Info-Tri: Product and Packaging Labeling Requirements for the French Market
The Triman logo is a mandatory, unified signage for end-of-life products created from the French Decree in order to harmonize the separate collection systems within France. On January 1, 2022, new modifications were made and the Triman logo must be accompanied by further sorting instructions (Info-Tri). Since Info-Tri varies for different product groups, what label and Info-Tri should you include on your products? What if the size of the label doesn’t fit on the product? And where can you find the most updated artwork and information?
Cybersecurity for IoT and Beyond: Complying with EU Regulations
As electronic devices like phones, smart home appliances, and toys become increasingly interconnected, the importance of cybersecurity has grown tremendously. In response, governments and regulators have introduced standards to ensure cyber safety for such devices. With mandatory cybersecurity regulations set to take effect in EU countries in August 2024, businesses need to prepare their products to comply with these regulations. Ensuring customers feel secure while using your products is essential to building trust in your brand. How can you help your clients have peace of mind? We can guide you through the steps to prepare for and comply with these regulations.
EU directives for E&E products: What you need to know to ensure product compliance?
Operating electrical and electronic (E&E) products could pose potential risks to users. To ensure consumer safety and keep up with technological development, governments worldwide are continuously revising and tightening safety regulations of E&E equipment. In the European Union (EU), various directives and regulations have been established for E&E products. Under the E&E related regulations, what requirements do you need to be aware of to ensure that your products are compliant? What upcoming regulatory updates do you need to prepare for and why is electrical safety test necessary for the EU market?
PFAS: the "Forever Chemicals"
PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl compound substances (PFAS) have been widely used in consumer products because of their properties, which include water and oil resistance, stability under extreme temperatures and chemical inertness. However, due to the dangers that PFAS pose to human health and the environment, the governments and consumer protection agencies of many countries have been taking steps towards stricter regulation and subsequent elimination of PFAS.
Taking Action: How to Rid the Textile Industry of APEOs
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has enacted a new requirement on textile article, Annex XVII to REACH, which came into effect on 3 February 2021. As many suppliers and their manufacturers found themselves failing the requirement, brands are having their own APEO requirements to ensure their textiles products achieve product compliance in the EU.
