Product regulations are rapidly increasing in number and complexity in all parts of the world and all product use areas. Establishing a surveillance system for all these regulations is extremely challenging and the ability to influence the development of these regulations is even more challenging. This workshop will examine various options available for establishing a surveillance system and provide the pros and cons of each approach. This workshop will also provide strategies on how to be effective in the advocacy arena in an attempt to promote good science based fit for purpose regulations.

This half-day workshop is specifically designed for new and early career product stewards, mid-career professionals looking to enhance their core competencies, as well as professionals who want to better understand regulatory surveillance and advocacy or professionals who are actively involved in advocacy activities, including legal, public affairs, and business.
