Join top industry experts from leading UK retailers and international distributors for a practical seminar on managing regulatory and reputational product risks for commercial gain
The seminar will address questions such as: With the number and complexity of regulations remorselessly increasing, what‘s the most effective way to ensure product compliance without costly internal technical expertise tied up in a giant test certificate chase? How can technical experts’ time be freed up to work with suppliers on product development? As product and supplier churn increases, how do you stop compliance checking impacting on product time to market? How will the government regulatory landscape change over the next five years? Product supply chains are becoming more ‘transparent’: what’s the best methodology for capturing supply chain risk to improve commercial buying decisions? What can analysis of product ‘big data’ deliver in commercial terms? Join your peers and the Track Record Global team to hear the answers from experts, and discuss effective and innovative solutions with like-minded industry professionals – all in the impressive surroundings of the world famous Saïd Business School, University of Oxford. TRG’s experience – gained from working with over 2000 suppliers located in 52 countries, supplying nearly 1 million products – demonstrates that not only can product risks be managed effectively and efficiently online, but also the associated ‘big data’ can be used to real commercial advantage. The seminar will be a high quality event.
