Simon Kinsman, Director of Regulatory Affairs, CCSPA
Stephanie Golden, Director of Policy, CCSPA
Legislative and regulatory activity in other countries typically influences U.S. policies. While we often look to Europe, companies should also be aware of what’s happening in the north with one of our most important trading partners, Canada. Experts from the Canadian Consumer Specialty Products Association (CCSPA) will discuss activity in Canada that may impact the industry.
One way that companies are aiming to improve their environmental footprint is through providing products in packaging that can be used or filled multiple times before being disposed of and products that are diluted prior to or during use. In this working session, attendees will discuss the challenges that industry might face when making the shift to refillable, reusable, and concentrated products.
Vice President Education and Outreach, Institute for In Vitro Sciences (IIVS)
Regulatory Acceptance of NAMs:
New Approach Methods (NAMs) are becoming more common and have been used recently to replicate, enhance, or replace animal-based testing data. Unfortunately, government agencies don’t always accept NAMs in place of animal-based testing. This session will address the use of NAMs and discuss plans to increase their regulatory acceptance.
Lessons Learned from TSCA Risk Evaluation and Risk Management:
This session will explore the lessons learned from the chemicals that have completed the risk evaluation and risk management process under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).
This athletic-based sculpting class works all muscle groups through a variety of strengthening exercises.
The household and commercial products industry has received backlash about chemicals used intentionally and those found as byproducts or contaminants in products. In this working session, attendees will future-cast emerging chemicals of concern that could impact the formulation and packaging of products.
Principal and Owner, Washburn Consulting
California, Colorado, Maine, and Oregon have all enacted Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) laws for packaging that aim to promote increased recycling and a more circular economy. Companies that produce products with obligations under EPR laws will need to have a deep understanding of their packaging data and have a process and system in place for making decisions about their packaging portfolio and reporting to Producer Responsibility Organizations (PROs). This session will discuss how companies can prepare for EPR compliance readiness and strategic insights on EPR policy development.
This session will focus on how state regulators identify and respond to public health emergencies, including disease outbreaks, and the role that EPA and other federal agencies play in this process.
Speaker: Sarahann Rackl, Ph.D., Principal Engineer, Exponent
Companies invest significant time and resources into developing chemicals, products, and processes that maximize resource efficiency, reduce or eliminate the generation of hazardous substances and pollution, and consider overall impact through systems and life cycle thinking. However, there are many legislative and regulatory barriers that can prevent innovation and result in regrettable substitutions. In this working session, attendees will discuss the challenges to the commercialization of sustainable chemistry in order to help lead the industry forward.
Government Procurement Impacting the HI&I Market:
Government procurement represents a significant opportunity for companies and should be aimed at providing a boost to the domestic economy. In this working session, attendees will discuss how shifts in government procurement policy could not only limit product offerings for public authorities, but also impact product offerings for consumers and other businesses.
