Hi, I'm Stacey Bowers, MILS!

Stacey Bowers is a compliance consultant with nearly 10 years' experience monitoring, selecting, and summarizing international consumer products regulations and standards for global retailers, manufacturers, brands, and their supply chain partners.

I have extensive knowledge of analytical, labeling, safety, and testing issues applicable to apparel, cosmetics, food, food contact articles, footwear, giveaways/ incentives/ premiums, home textiles, jewelry, juvenile products, and toys, including the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), the Canadian Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA), the EU's REACH Regulation, California'€™s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 (aka Proposition 65), and Japan's Food Sanitation Law.

I am a producer of current, comprehensive, and customized products to address strategic business needs for consumer products companies, including entering new geographic markets; facilitating education and training throughout the supply chain; and development of global best practices around regulatory compliance.
