Why You Should Attend

Chem/Petrochemical Regulatory Reform & Product Liability

The two day conference covers how to manage looming deadlines, strict labeling, classification and safety requirements, and evolving regulations that differ between Federal, State and Local levels. Our chemical, petrochemical, and regulatory expert speaker panel will provide first-hand experience in ensuring compliance, avoiding penalties, and improving internal business processes. Attendees will leave with a laid out plan on how to keep internal and external stakeholders informed and up-to-date on relevant frameworks.

Via case study presentations, our liability, trade and compliance professionals will address strategies on adapting to an evolving regulatory environment, chemical data reporting methods, potential impacts of TSCA reforms, GHS requirements, retail value chain and its impact on the industry, compliance with RCRA, and the future of EDSP. Other topics to be discussed include the chemical regulations impact on import and export activities, penetrating the consumer market with voluntary labeling programs and registering chemicals globally.
