Navigate the Requirements and Develop a Successful Marketing Strategy for New Polymers

Polymers are regulated differently than discreet chemicals. Generally the amount of time and money needed for successful registration of new polymers is much less than that for chemicals and in some instances can be zero. The key is in understanding the way 'new' polymers are defined, the various exclusions and exemptions available, and in what way should you find out whether the polymer in question is of 'low concern' interest. This presentation by global regulatory expert Jeffrey Hafer will focus on these requirements and help you minimize time to market for new polymers. Jeff will also focus on how to determine what is needed to commercialize a "new' polymer globally.

Polymer science yields a very dynamic and diverse world of technologies that touch many high growth markets. Speed to market is critical to avoid loss of potential competitive advantage. Minimizing the need for costly and time consuming registrations can help assure commercial success.

Session Highlights:

  • Global polymer definitions
  • Exemptions and Exclusions
  • Low Concern Criteria including Reactive Functional Groups
  • Data requirements when notification is required
  • Strategies to avoid the need for notification
  • Current and future issues of concern for polymers

With this information you will be able to assure the identity of your polymer is correct, determine if alternate definitions that are already registered are available, maximize use of existing exemptions and develop a strategy for notification if necessary.

With a clear understanding of global polymer regulations professionals can not only save their companies time and money through reduced regulatory hurdles but can also help steer R&D efforts to substances that have little or no barriers to commercialization.

Who Should Attend

  • Regulatory affairs professionals and EHS specialists who are directly responsible for compliance activities.
  • EHS managers who want to gain a global perspective.
  • Technical staff and managers in other functions (e.g., R&D, Product Stewardship) that want to get a more detailed understanding of how polymers are regulated globally.
