    Hi Kristen, an unusual question coming from a University student, so wonder if business is one of your study topics.I look back on my 20 years of being a sourcing agent and know that that industry has gone from one of trial and error, (preferably minimum of the latter) to an organized industry with set "rules of engagement" to the extent that certain products such as children related, have to undergo strict lab tests to ascertain they do not contain lead, are not flammable and that certain parts, such as teddy bear eyes, will not come off.As in any industry, there is always room for improvement and it is up to us the practitioners, especially those who have their own trusted "feet on the ground" in the production country, to see to it.Trust this gives you some insight. Should you have further questions, post them.Best,Eli
