Action and Reaction: Developing a sustainable approach to emerging chemical issues

Baltimore, MD | Posted on April 2nd, 2007

WHAT


Action and Reaction: Developing a sustainable approach to emerging chemical issues



A conference to address the economic and regulatory impact of chemical controls and regulations such as REACH, RoHS, WEEE and GHS on U.S. industry.






WHY


Global manufacturers are facing mounting pressure from the expansion of domestic and foreign chemical controls and government regulatory programs.



The Action and Reaction conference will launch a collaborative initiative aimed at balancing the social and economic impacts of chemical controls and regulations. Affected areas include chemical security, waste management, energy efficiencies, and other environmental and production activities that help to promote and enhance safety, health and the quality of life.



Through a series of engaging keynote presentations, panel discussions and breakout sessions, participants will help to identify existing programs, initiatives, and applicable standards and compliance programs. A conference report will outline resources and recommendations for coordinated strategies and action plans.






WHEN


Thursday and Friday, August 9-10, 2007






WHO


The event is open to all stakeholders, including industry, government, the scientific and technical communities, and other affected groups. Registration will begin in May; advance registration will be required.
