Regulators and Industry Specifiers

With products entering the United States from all corners of the globe, there is a need for effective mechanisms to regulate safety and security without introducing new barriers to trade.

While the government has a leading role in regulation and policy statements, the sheer magnitude of evaluation needed for domestic and imported products cannot economically be handled by government agencies and regulation alone. A2LA is poised to help.
