FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

The 2019 JPMA Show to Host The International Standards Organization (ISO) Task Groups
Global Standards that Impact You: Live at The JPMA Show, April 10–13 in Orlando, FL

MT. LAUREL, NJ, Jan. 4, 2019 — The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) is pleased to announce it will host The International Standards Organization (ISO) multinational committee, ISO PC 310, as it works to develop a new global standard for strollers, at The JPMA Show: Built for Baby, April 10-13, 2019 in Orlando, FL.

ISO is a consensus-based, standard-setting organization which brings global standard setting bodies together to develop requirements and test methods for specific product categories. In the case of ISO PC 310, technical experts from more than XX countries are working together to identify the commonalities across existing standards, and incorporate them into one streamlined standard that can ultimately be adopted by interested countries. With ISO's presence, The JPMA Show will become an international forum for standard setting work.

“JPMA is thrilled to be able to take a leadership role in ISO PC 310 as the committee works on standard development for wheeled child conveyances, the global descriptor for the stroller category,” said Kelly Mariotti, executive director of JPMA. “This is a critical opportunity for the North American component of our industry, as represented by JPMA, to have a voice at the international level on developing and revising juvenile products standards that impact us all.”

U.S.-based technical experts participate in the ISO standard development process by way of ASTM, the administrator of U.S. involvement [ASTM to insert a boilerplate statement or quote here].

ISO attendees at the show will have the opportunity to participate in the Show's educational offerings, the industry party, the Annual Meeting (if representing the global arm of a JPMA member company) and walk the show floor. Space permitting, interested individuals may observe the ISO task group meetings.

The JPMA Show will be held April 10-13, 2019, at The Orange County Convention Center in Orlando FL, 9800 International Drive. For more information on the show visit https://www.jpmashow.org/
