The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host “Action and Reaction: Developing a Sustainable Approach to Emerging Chemical Issues” August 9–10 in Baltimore. Global manufacturers are facing increasing pressure to balance the economic and societal impact of domestic and foreign chemical controls such as REACH, RoHS, WEEE and GHS. This conference aims to engage participants in solutions-focused discussions that bridge regulatory requirements with sustainable manufacturing practices.
John Marburger, director of the President’s Office of Science and Technology Policy, will deliver the keynote address, beginning a study of existing and expected chemical codes and regulations. Life cycle management, risk assessment and other environmental performance tools will also be discussed. Featured speakers will offer perspectives from industry, government, and the scientific and technical communities, as well as representative views from the Asia-Pacific region.
