The PPAI Code of Product Responsibility Conduct offers industry professionals a tangible presentation of what they are doing to meet the expectations of end buyers for product safety, social and environmental assurances. The Code is a statement of principles that a supplier would hand to a distributor and a distributor would hand to an end buyer when an end buyer expresses those expectations.
PPAI recommends that all members—suppliers, distributors and business services companies—adopt this voluntary Code of Conduct. Many of the largest and most well-respected companies in the industry have already adopted the Code. Among these early adopters are:
Ariel Premium Supply
Connect the Dots Promotions
The Mort C. McClennan Co.
Pioneer Balloon Company
Polyconcept North America (Leed’s)
Prime Resources Corporation
Scott & Associates, Inc.
The Vernon Company
PPAI has published the Code and encourages its members to sign it in response to the increased regulations and scrutiny of the consumer products market. It’s an effective way for industry companies to publicly demonstrate their commitment to responsible business practices. Many end buyers, particularly larger businesses, have already adopted their own Code of Product Responsibility Conduct and often look for their business partners to adopt a code of conduct as well.
