  2. 2. • RILA’s Primary Mission – Education, Advocacy and Collaboration • Disseminate information • Educate members on legal requirements, voluntary standards and compliance obligations • Facilitate benchmarking on leading practices • Be the voice of the retail industry for regulators and legislators • Advocate on member’s behalf • Build coalitions to further association reach Role of Trade Associations 2

  4. 4. • CPSC compliance is just one piece of companies’ broader compliance programs • Companies also have compliance plans for a broad range of issues, including: • OSHA • Environmental compliance, including EPA requirements • FDA, food safety • Pharmacy • Human resources • Marketing and advertising compliance • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act • Potentially differing state programs for all these areas Retailers Focused on All Compliance Activities 4
  5. 5. • Retailers are often the face of a recall for consumers • Retailers put in place “stop sale” technologies for stores once products are recalled • Often retailers are not alerted to a recall until the day of, or even after, recall has been announced • Useful for UPC code to be used rather than SKU • Helpful when U.S. Government agencies partner on joint announcements (e.g., lithium ion batteries with Department of Transportation) • Poster recall announcements should be used sparingly Compliance in Reverse Logistics 5
  6. 6. • Board of Directors increasingly focusing on companies’ overall compliance risk, including product safety • Increased number of “chief compliance officers” • Increased budgets being dedicated to compliance efforts across programs Retail Compliance Programs 6

  9. 9. Compliance Plans Are Only One Piece of the Puzzle AHAM does not have policies or procedures on how to develop a compliance plan—there are many other resources on this to which we direct our members AHAM members’ top priority is to design appliances that are as safe as they are useful Compliance plans are only one piece of the safety puzzle Hazard-based safety engineering and risk assessment are the foundation—assessing risk and designing safety into the product AHAM members test products to ensure they meet or exceed safety standards and continually work to proactively improve standards based on new innovations to reduce potential risks and further improve consumer safety Consumer education is another key element 2
  10. 10. Building a World-Class Safety System Key elements for building a world-class safety system: Organization within the company Safety should not be bound by traditional reporting structures, but should be part of a matrix organization Alerts, training, and communication are key Product safety responsibilities present in company culture, functions, policies, communications Need safety committees, procedures, and managers Necessities for corporate consumer safety policy Elements of a company-wide product safety system Going beyond the minimum Go beyond minimum safety standards and requirements 3
  11. 11. Key Elements for Corporate Consumer Safety 1. Corporate Policy 2. Senior Management Ownership 3. Directed responsibilities 4. Clear Objectives 5. Corporate Product Safety Function 6. Processes with Disciplines 7. Regional authority 8. Hazard communications processes 9. Monitoring product safety performance 10. Defined Corrective Action procedures 11. Ability to modify procedures 12. Training 4
  12. 12. Elements of a company-wide safety system  Management support from the very top  Clear policy/policies  Decision to meet all standards and regulations around the world  Establish decision-making procedures that account for all risks  Unified level of safety in all regions  Establish a world-wide post-sale monitoring system  Train personnel world-wide on documentation  Use attorneys (counseling and litigation) Recommendation 5
  13. 13. Establish a company organization that works  Find the system that works  Reporting structure is important, but access is greater  There is no one-way to structure product safety reporting  Make resources available for:  Training  Investigations  Failure analysis  Communications  Consultants  Don’t try to imitate other companies Recommendation 6
  14. 14. Recalls AHAM members, like other manufacturers, produce hundreds of millions of products each year. Strive to and succeed in designing and building products to highest levels of quality and safety Demonstrated commitment to internal safety design, monitoring, and evaluation/failure analysis systems. Sometimes, it is necessary to work with CPSC through reporting and, sometimes, corrective action plans and recalls. A recall, or even several, is not an indication that a compliance plan is inadequate Multiple voluntary recalls over time often indicate that a firm has a broad product scope, makes many products, and most importantly, has a robust compliance program. Many companies that have effective compliance programs will have recalls from time to time because an effective process will identify potential hazards and prevent future recalls. A firm without such a program will likely fail to identify potential hazards. 7
