Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2014
Infocast, a leading business intelligence and networking events producer, is pleased to announce the return of its market-leading Safer Consumer Products Summit, scheduled for May 6-8, 2014 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
26 states considered chemical safety legislation in 2013 in response to concerns about the safety of chemicals in consumer products, with California, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, Vermont and Washington all passing laws. But no state was as ambitious or aggressive as California, whose Green Chemistry Regulations went into effect on October 1, 2013 with the listing of about 1,100 Candidate Chemicals. The next phase of the regulations is right around the corner, with the listing of up to five Priority Products by April 1, 2014 for which Alternatives Analyses could be required. In the absence of TSCA reform, California’s Safer Consumer Products Regulations are the law of the land for companies who conduct consumer products business in the world’s eighth largest economy.
Infocast has organized the 4th Safer Consumer Products Summit, the only meeting of its kind, to provide the most up-to-date information available on California’s Green Chemistry law, the rapidly evolving state & international consumer safety regulatory landscape and the potential for TSCA Reform. The Summit returns to California to bring together senior authority figures from governmental decision makers, nationally recognized consumer brands, manufacturers, retailers and green chemistry experts in order to respond to the regulations with an in-depth discussion on what actions are necessary to thrive in this new era of consumer goods. In addition to our market-leading summit, the Safer Alternatives to Priority Chemicals Pre-Summit Workshop will examine bio-based and sustainable chemical substitutions along the safer consumer products landscape.
The event is sponsored by Bergeson & Campbell PC, AlterEcho, Keller and Heckman LLP, and ToxServices LLC, and will feature senior-level speakers from the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC), U.S. EPA, Aubrey Organics, Badger Body-Care, BASF, Ford, GoodGuide/UL, Henkel, HP, IBM, Interface, Method, Staples, Steelcase and many more! The event is supported by the American Sustainable Business Council, California Retailers Association, Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute, Healthy Child Healthy World, Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association, Natural Products Association and Renewable Chemicals and Materials Alliance (re:chem)
