The CPSIA aims to set what would be the most stringent guidelines worldwide for children’s products containing lead and phthalates (a chemical used in some vinyl products). Products intended for children ages 12 and under must meet these guidelines with certifications of doing so from a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) accredited laboratory. What does this mean to your processes, quality control, testing, and lot trace/track reporting? The CPSC has a website dedicated to detailed information about this important legislation – http://www.cpsc.gov/about/cpsia/cpsia.html, which includes timelines, presentations, requirements and guidance, and important updates.
JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 lot tracing capability provides functionality to both: trace a lot backward across multiple branch/plants and multiple levels within manufacturing and transfer process to the initial purchase receipt; and trace a lot forward across multiple levels within manufacturing and transfer process to last shipment made.
The JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 Quality Management system allows you to collect samples and perform quality tests at user-defined points in the business cycle and verify whether the material meets specifications at different points in the business flow.
