Industry News and Updates
The world of compliance for stuffed articles is complicated to navigate if you don’t have a helping hand. Global Registration Services is excited to announce a major update to our website that will make it even easier to navigate and take the actions you need for registration and compliance.
Our goal is to help manufacturers, importers and retailers get compliant and stay compliant. Our new site makes it clear what actions your organization needs to take for compliance, how long those steps may take and how much they may cost. In short, we’re providing unparalleled clarity into a process that has been historically difficult to understand.
We hope you enjoy the better user experience with the new GRS website. Read on to see some of the highlights and new features that will make compliance more simple.
Registration can be a complicated process, especially if it is your first time applying for a Uniform Registry Number (URN). Whether you are a manufacturer, an importer, or are pursuing joint registration, our website makes it simple to understand the registration options available to you.
In addition to explaining the steps you will need to take to register for a URN, we also explore how much registration may cost and how long it may take before you can begin selling your products in the United States.
It’s not always easy to understand which states have which requirements for law labels — until now. We’ve built an interactive map that makes it easy to see which states have specific requirements that may affect your business.
Our law label page also helps you determine if your product requires a law label based on product category and on filling material. If it does require a law label, you can count on GRS for design and printing — or we can audit an existing label to make sure it’s compliant.
By enrolling in one of GRS’s Monitored Services, we can help your organization manage renewals, expirations and violations on your behalf. Monitored Services are an efficient way to get compliant and stay compliant.
Depending on which service you choose, GRS will help you understand requirements for each state, keep you aware of expiration dates or handle renewals on your behalf, and store your licenses online for 24/7 access. See how else Monitored Services makes managing your licenses simpler.
Retail store violations can be a costly headache for retailers. To help stay ahead of violations, GRS offers the Retail Compliance program. By enrolling in the program at no cost, retailers can ensure their suppliers have the help of trusted professionals at GRS to get registered the right way and stay compliant.
The Retail Compliance program is also a great way to make compliance part of a retailer’s testing protocols. Test labs can enroll to gain unparalleled insight into the compliance status of each supplier, and require that licenses be up to date before those products get stocked on your shelves.
Did you know that GRS does more than just compliance for stuffed articles? If you need help with anything from adhesive labels, California Prop 65 labels — or even compliance for pet food — Global Registration Services can assist.
