CALIFORNIA HAS IMPLEMENTED A GREEN CHEMISTRY REGIME AND OTHER STATE AND FEDERAL REGULATIONS WILL FOLLOW

Network with Key Industry Players and Learn How to Stake Your Place in the New Markets, with detailed briefings on:

  • California’s Priority Chemicals and the first release of its Priority Products list
  • The requirements for and early experience with Alternatives Analysis
  • The U.S. EPA’s Chemical Management Program
  • Regulatory developments and outlook for other states, for Federal legislation (TSCA Reform) and for International Standards
  • Innovative responses from the chemical industry and its suppliers



26 states considered chemical safety legislation in 2013 in response to concerns about the safety of chemicals in consumer products, with California, Maine, Minnesota, Nevada, Vermont and Washington all passing laws. But no state was as ambitious or aggressive as California, whose Green Chemistry Regulations went into effect on October 1, 2013 with the listing of about 1,100 Candidate Chemicals. The next phase of the regulations is right around the corner, with the listing of up to five Priority Products by April 1, 2014 for which Alternatives Analyses could be required. In the absence of TSCA reform, California’s Safer Consumer Products Regulations are the law of the land for companies who conduct consumer products business in the world’s eighth largest economy.

Infocast has organized the 4th Safer Consumer Products Summit, the only meeting of its kind, to provide the most up-to-date information available on California’s Green Chemistry law, the rapidly evolving state & international consumer safety regulatory landscape and the potential for TSCA Reform. The Summit returns to California to bring together senior authority figures from governmental decision makers, nationally recognized consumer brands, manufacturers, retailers and green chemistry experts in order to respond to the regulations with an in-depth discussion on what actions are necessary to thrive in this new era of consumer goods. This groundbreaking event is a must attend for companies who plan on doing consumer products business in California.

In addition to our market-leading summit, the Safer Alternatives to Priority Chemicals Pre-Summit Workshop will examine bio-based and sustainable chemical substitutions along the safer consumer products landscape. Included in the workshop are sessions focused on Bio-Based & Sustainable Chemical Alternatives, Alternative Plasticizers, and Sustainable Home & Personal Care Products. Attend to learn about possible alternatives to chemicals of concern that may be part of your supply chain and how you can utilize tools like Alternatives Assessment, LCA, Product Certifications and Eco-Labels to create safer consumer products.
