New chemical notifications and food contact notifications can be costly and complex regulatory hurdles to overcome, especially in our increasingly global era, said Senior Conference Producer Jessica Johnson.
Portland, Maine (PRWEB) April 2, 2009
The 2nd annual Chemical Notification/Food Contact World Summit, set for September 14 - 16, 2009 at the Hotel Palomar in Arlington, VA, US, will provide a practical, real-world guide to submitting new chemical notifications according to international guidelines and will focus on new chemical notifications, food contact regulations, REACH, GHS, ChAMP, exclusions and exemptions and much more.
"New chemical notifications and food contact notifications can be costly and complex regulatory hurdles to overcome, especially in our increasingly global era, said Senior Conference Producer Jessica Johnson. "This conference will combine the two for a comprehensive and international tutorial that will enable delegates to hear from representatives from administrations all over the world. I'm excited to build a bigger and more extensive program this year!"
Last year's event brought in a wide cross-section of the chemicals industry, including representatives from: Eka Chemicals, Chevron Energy Technology Company, SC Johnson & Son, LyondellBasell Industries, Wacker Chemie AG, Bayer Materials Science, Rhodia, Hercules, Ciba Specialty Chemicals, BASF and many more. This year's program agenda will instruct delegates on current chemical notification procedures in various global markets through presentations, post-conference seminars and breakout sessions. Delegates will also receive an in-depth tutorial on REACH compliance as well as current and pending updates to regulations in the US and Canada. Additional sessions on food contact notification are planned and delegates will be able to tailor their own program for a customized conference experience.
Topics to be discussed include:
- The next step toward achieving REACH compliance - 2010 and beyond
- Guidelines for new chemical notification in Canada
- What's happening in China regarding food contact and new chemical notification
- Making sense of the notification process in Japan
- An update on regulations in the US
