2024 Conference Recaps — ICPHSO & ICFA


The Global Registration Services and American Law Label teams have had a busy Q1 2024 attending conferences across the country. Here we’ve compiled our team’s takeaways and key learnings that we will use to help our customers stay compliant this year and beyond.


Our participation at the ICPHSO 2024 conference was multifaceted, encompassing exhibition, sponsorship, and presentation. 

As exhibitors, we showcased our solutions for stuffed article compliance, engaging with attendees to discuss industry challenges.

As sponsors, we lent our support to the event and its initiatives, including the mentorship program, underlining our dedication to fostering growth and development within the product safety community.

And as presenters, we delved into crucial topics facing the industry.

Sustainability & Labeling Complexities

In our "The Push and Pull of Sustainability" presentation, we explored the delicate balance between regulatory obligations and stakeholder expectations in achieving sustainability goals. 

The panel consisted of multiple perspectives in a dynamic conversation that highlighted the complexities of meeting what sometimes feels like conflicting priorities. 

Further, our "Navigating the Labeling Labyrinth" presentation examined stuffed article labeling requirements at state, U.S., and global levels. Panel members included expertise from a regulatory agency, legal, and solution provider perspectives. 

Moving Compliance Forward

Throughout the conference, we enjoyed meaningful interactions with customers, deepening relationships and gaining valuable insights into their needs and concerns. Additionally, we forged new connections with industry peers, expanding our network and laying the groundwork for future collaborations.

Our involvement in ICPHSO 2024 was not only a testament to our dedication to stuffed article compliance but also a reaffirmation of our commitment to driving positive change within the industry.

International Casual Furnishings Association (ICFA) Elevate Conference

Our team also recently attended the ICFA Elevate Conference in Scottsdale, AZ. The conference provided a unique perspective of the outdoor furnishings industry for our team. We connected with several current clients and met many new friends. 

One of the main issues discussed at the ICFA conference was the new and proposed rules regarding PFAS. American Law Label and GRS are monitoring these emerging regulations. To catch up on the current issues concerning PFAS, read our blog linked below.
