Earn 1 Contact Hour

It’s no secret that global product regulations have grown exponentially in the last 15 years, leaving companies at risk of production disruptions or an inability to sell their products. This has substantially raised the stakes for confirming compliance, raising the risk of costly fines more than ever. With such an increase in regulations, keeping up with compliance and safety protocols is more than a full-time job—but there are smart ways to approach global regulations that make it easier for you stay compliant, starting with an environmental, health and safety (EH&S) audit. These crucial audits assess a specific facility’s compliance to all of its jurisdictions’ regulations. A well-planned EH&S audit evaluates product compliance for the entire life cycle of your company’s product —from the components all the way through to the finished product. 

This webinar recording helps product stewards and EHS professionals get ahead of and overcome these complicated product-specific challenges, along with providing important safety practices and other important product stewardship factors. The focus will be on:
  • ​the most influential global product regulations;
  • how to adapt current EH&S audit protocols to include product regulations; and 
  • why compliance to those regulations affects the viability of a facility or organization and its brand

​This recording will benefit those who wish to incorporate product-based auditing into their existing facility or corporate audit program, get ahead of potential fines, and avoid non-compliance by expanding their knowledge base and abilities to include product regulations.
