Bills may be addressed in committees and public hearings at any time, so check back frequently for updates to the status of any bills of interest to you.

FJATA Achievements

FJATA is proud of its leadership role in ensuring that the fashion jewelry and accessories industries are on the cutting edge of developing new standards and devising best practices. FJATA is working in several state legislatures to advocate against legislation on heavy metals in jewelry that would harm the fashion jewelry industry, deny consumers access to safe products and do nothing to improve jewelry safety.
