Why You Should Attend


Myriad standards for products regulation exist outside of the regulatory structure. Building on the first program's focus on traditional regulatory requirements, this program will discuss how standards beyond and apart from the regulatory structure—including private standards such as ISO and ANSI—are developed for chemicals. Learn how such standards affect industry, including product design and materials selection.


This program is the second in the four-part series: Entering the Marketplace: Public and Private Product Regulation at Home and Abroad, on the marketing and sale of products that have a significant chemical component. Legal, regulatory, product stewardship, standard setting, and private retailer initiatives will be discussed, and participants will gain an understanding of how chemicals are currently regulated and how these regulations may change in the future. Part three of the series, Bringing a Product to the Marketplace, will be on December 4.
