For over 30 years, GlobalChem has been the chemical industry’s premier policy and regulatory conference of its kind. Each year, this annual gathering of industry professionals offers a valuable opportunity to review key developments in the global chemicals management arena while looking ahead to some of the most pressing issues the industry faces.
2017 shifts the focus of GlobalChem to the recently signed Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act (LCSA). The passing of this watershed legislation means that the 2017 conference is even more important as a venue for industry and EPA leaders to share insights and priorities about the new law’s implementation.
GlobalChem 2017 will include discussions about how the industry can support the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's efforts to effectively and efficiently implement key provisions of the LCSA; how the new will law have a meaningful impact on consumer and marketplace confidence in the safety of chemicals; and, how the LCSA can serve as a risk-based model for chemical regulation internationally.
