ANSI is hosting a conference in Baltimore, MD that we are sure many of our clients would be interested in. We have been hearing a great deal of anxiety about the potential impact of GHS and REACH regulations:

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.


On August 9-10, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host Action and Reaction: Developing a sustainable approach to emerging chemical issues, in Baltimore, MD, to engage participants in solutions-focused discussions that bridge regulatory requirements with sustainable manufacturing practices.


“From textiles and pharmaceuticals to electronics and automobiles, chemicals are used in every industry,” explained Dr. Nina McClelland, former chair of the American Chemical Society and chair of the conference planning committee. “The impact is all encompassing. Chemical issues span research and development, production, supply chain and security, energy efficiency, sustainability (green chemistry), and waste management.”

The release is available here. Registration closes July 27.
