Ongoing public unease about the toxicity of consumer products has led to a variety of state-level policy actions designed to alter the way in which chemicals and the products containing them are designed, formulated, manufactured, marketed, consumed and disposed. These uncoordinated state laws governing consumer product safety have resulted in a patchwork of varying standards and a difficult environment for businesses. This lack of standardization, along with a recognition that the 1976 Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) no longer provides a sufficient framework for ensuring consumer product safety, has led to a bipartisan effort in Congress to pass unifying federal legislation and re-establish national standards for businesses and their customers. The world of consumer product safety is passing into a new, and potentially radically different, era.

As a result, Infocast has organized this 3rd Safer Consumer Products Summit: National Policy Outlook in order to provide the most up-to-date information available on the rapid evolution of consumer safety regulation, including both existing state-level changes and emerging state and Federal initiatives, including TSCA Reform. It also brings together nationally recognized representatives of green chemistry solution providers, leading consumer brands, manufacturers, retailers and other stakeholders across the supply chain to strategize the changes necessary to ensure regulatory compliance in the new era and to take advantage of the benefits that green chemistry can provide for new and reformulated product design, production and marketing. Join our dynamic group of speakers and attendees from leading chemical manufacturers, brand owners, retailers, trade groups, government and policy officials, investors , health and environmental campaigners, consultants, contract labs, and solution vendors to gain the information and make the connections you will need to prosper in tomorrow’s world of safer consumer products.

In addition, our two half-day, pre-summit workshops will examine two significant areas within the safer consumer products landscape. The Alternative Plasticizers Pre-Summit Workshop will delve into phthalate-based plasticizers and present current as well as future green alternatives and our Personal Care Products & Cosmetics Pre-Summit Workshop will detail the benefits and challenges associated with sustainable ingredients. Attend these workshops to learn about possible
