QRA Implementation Workshop

RIFM and IFRA held a QRA Implementation Workshop for all (member and non-member) supplier and client companies on January 23, 2007. Due to the many changes anticipated with the 42nd Amendment, another workshop will be held on Monday, June 4, 2007. This workshop is being designed to provide continued guidance to both the supplier and client industries. As such, the workshop will once again be open to all member and non-members and will again be made available via webinar. More details will be provided in the coming weeks on the RIFM and IFRA Web sites.
