Around the world chemical tour

Graunke, Dawn; Majors, Mary

Several countries, including the US, are reviewing their chemical strategies, taking a close look at EU REACH. Could this mean harmonized global chemical regulaitons? Harmonizing chemical legislation in all countries would be extremely complicated because of variations in government structures. This presentation will take a tour of current and pending chemical regulations around the globe with a focus on potential impacts to the supply chain, importer requirements, and what it takes to import/export a chemical around the world
