Associate Bio

Are you having trouble dealing with Amazon safety and quality demands? 

David has helped hundreds of Amazon sellers deal with Amazon’s safety testing requirements, including:
1. helping them understand why Amazon won’t accept their test reports and safety documents and solving the problem,
2. getting all of their testing and documentation done from start to finish,
3. developing a testing plan for their full product line so that they can simultaneously save money and have all their testing in place before a crisis. This also helps identify failures before the shipment is manufactured in large scale, shipped and paid for, so that corrections can be made and the product will pass all safety requirements.

David has also managed the ISO 17025 accredited quality systems of ALM Corporation (a supplier of engineering plastic resins to the automotive, furniture, tool and other industries) and Benchmark Laboratories, a laboratory that tests toys, children’s jewellery, and other children’s products to meet safety and industry regulations, including setting up the initial Benchmark quality system and attaining its ISO 17025 accreditation, maintaining both laboratory’s accreditations, and upgrading both systems to the newest version of ISO 17025:2017. This includes auditing, corrective actions and preventive actions, quality improvement and formulation advice.
