Ever-changing industrial chemical control laws (CCLs) and regulations can present a huge barrier to innovation and commercial success. Uncertainty in the cost and timing for new chemical notifications in multiple jurisdictions along with an exponential increase in regulations and changes to existing regulations make global compliance a challenge. The purpose of this presentation by expert speaker Jeffrey Hafer is to provide a fundamental understanding of how the disparate CCL systems work and to suggest strategic options for compliance to minimize uncertainty.
The session will have a discussion of the different types of CCLs (e.g., Inventories, Product Registries, Lists, Hazardous Substance and New Organisms Act [HSNO, New Zealand], EU REACH, Korea-REACH, etc.) and will focus on the regulatory "evolution" with increased emphasis on "existing" substances and the sunset of "safe harbor" inventories.
You will also understand how individual regulatory paradigms around the world are structured and operate and get a "crystal ball" view of how new regulations might evolve and what is the best way to introduce new and existing products and technologies to a global market.
