Establishing an Effective Global Product Stewardship Surveillance and Advocacy System
Monday, October 16, 2023: 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m. ET
A core responsibility of a product steward is to ensure marketability and compliance, but the number and complexity of global chemical management regulations continue to increase at an accelerating pace. Establishing strategies to track, interpret, advocate, and prepare for emerging and changing regulations is extremely challenging. This workshop examines various options for each of these steps and engages participants in a discussion of the pros and cons of each option. The goal of this workshop is for participants to develop strategies for ensuring marketability and compliance while being engaged partners in developing effective, science-based, and fit-for-purpose chemical management regulations.
This half-day workshop is specifically designed for mid-career professionals looking to enhance their core competencies and who can participate in the discussions, but it is also appropriate for new and early-career product stewards looking for new responsibilities. Industrial hygienists and other environmental health and safety professionals who want to better understand regulatory surveillance and advocacy, as well as aligned professionals who are involved in advocacy activities in legal departments, public affairs, and business, may benefit from attending this workshop.
