“Start things right in a new country: do your due diligence and discuss compliance right out of the gate”
The trade wars have diversified sourcing, and many challenges are arising as businesses shift from China to emerging regions. Academy International, ICTI Ethical Toy Program, ProductIP and QIMA representatives all shared the pain points experienced or observed in the field. Unlike China, which has a highly developed manufacturing infrastructure, many of the new sourcing countries are struggling to meet quality measures in the face of new volume demands. This has caused companies to go back to basics when it comes to onboarding new supplies and ensuring expectations are being met.
