  5. Relevance of Northern American chemical compliance trends for European enterprises: How European enterprises can leverage results of their EU regulatory activities

    In order to do business in North America, European enterprises need to not only comply with their regional regulatory requirements, but also with the requirements of the market of sales. After all, non-compliance can result in restricted access to the North American market, huge fines, and even substantial brand reputation damage.

    In this session, participants will learn more about the regulatory trends in the North American market, and how they stack up to their European equivalents. How does TSCA compare to REACH, why is Prop65 so different from European regulations, what are denominators when it comes to PFAS? And most importantly: how can companies leverage the efforts of their EU based regulatory activities to keep pace with the North American requirements?
