In late 2015, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) amended its rules under the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA), which requires all non-exempt products to carry labels identifying the contents, source, item quantity, and other information.
This program by expert speaker Kristi A. Davidson, a consumer law expert, will define the package and labeling requirements of the FPLA and examine the new rules of FTC. You will be able to discover how other Federal and State laws complement and work in conjunction with the FPLA, including: the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act; the Consumer Product Safety Act; the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act; the Federal Trade Commission Act; the California Safe Cosmetics Act; the California Safer Consumer Product Regulation; California's Proposition 65; various state consumer protection statutes; and various state packaging and labeling laws.
Kristi will also explain how errors in package labeling can lead to import refusals, government investigations and civil claims, and you will know why to look ahead to proposed new rules.
