Establishing an Effective Global Pro​duct Stewardship Surveillance and Advocacy System​

Monday, September 9 | 1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.​

The number and complexity of global chemical management regulations continues to increase at an accelerated pace. Establishing processes and tools to track, interpret, advocate, and prepare for emerging and changing regulations is extremely challenging. Join us to examine various options for each of these four steps and discuss the pros and cons of each approach. The goal for participants is to develop a strategy for being an engaged partner in the development of effective, science-based, fit-for-purpose, chemical management regulations.

This half-day workshop is specifically designed for new and early career product stewards, as well as mid-career professionals looking to enhance their core competencies; industrial hygienists and other EHS professionals wanting to better understand regulatory surveillance and advocacy; and professionals actively involved in advocacy activities, including legal, public affairs, and businesses.
