17 - 21 October 2016

ERM is the Sustainability Partner at ChemCon The Americas.

For almost 20 years, the ChemCon International Conference on Chemical Control and Trade Aspects has been the Chemical industry’s premier international event highlighting Product Regulatory and Supply Chain best practices and challenges. But the main goal of the conference is to reach beyond the industry by providing relatable presentations, special topical sessions, and networking opportunities that can't be found anywhere else.

This year’s America’s meeting will feature presentations given by more than 35 speakers from governments and industry who will focus in the field of international chemical legislation all over the world, like TSCA-reform, REACH, GHS and country specific information on inventories, labelling requirements, etc.

Are you ready for the new reality?
Are you finding yourself being asked to do more with less? The regulations keep coming. The complexities of the regulations keep increasing. Meeting organizational objectives is becoming more challenging as resources tighten and expertise thins. In this global marketplace, increasingly burdened with new chemical control regulation, GHS demands, packaging /distribution/transportation challenges, green chemistry initiatives and significant Value Chain challenges, even the largest organizations are finding themselves struggling to maintain the necessary scale of product sustainability services and expertise. The majority of product sustainability organizations find themselves ballooning and still not able to keep with targeted regional, country-, or end-use specific regulations at level of assurance necessary to support growing global business objectives.
