Explore the Asean regulatory landscape

Asia-Pacific plays a major role in the world economy, with China, India and Taiwan being the regional powerhouses. However, companies looking to diversify their supply chains are starting to find South-East Asia an increasingly attractive area for expansion. Ten countries come together under the umbrella of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and, taken together, they represent the world’s fifth-largest market. 

Whether companies are looking to expand into new markets, or shift their supply chain operations, the chemical management measures and legislation in place in many of these countries can be a barrier that needs to be overcome. 

Over four modules, this online training course will provide an overview of the regional regulatory landscape, with a focus on the current chemical management requirements in Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines.  

By attending this online training course, you will learn the following about each of these jurisdictions: 

  • notification and licensing requirements; 
  • chemicals restrictions; 
  • classification, labelling and packaging and safety data sheet requirements; 
  • extended producer responsibilities for packaging; and 
  • pending draft changes that might alter the current framework. 

There will also be an exploration of the individual differences between ASEAN member nations, as well as a look at how they differ from other regulatory regimes in Europe, the US and the rest of Asia-Pacific. 

Not only will attendees get an in-depth explanation of South-East Asia’s regulatory requirements, but they will also get practical suggestions for navigating the region’s often challenging regulatory procedures and processes. 

For those who have attended previous trainings on Thailand, this course will provide regulatory updates and impacts for companies based on the latest regulatory updates, including:  

  • latest updates to the List of Hazardous Substances published by the Thai Department of Industry Works (DIW); 
  • additional requirements relating to Thailand’s phase-out of certain PFASs and POP chemicals under the Stockholm Convention; and  
  • Thailand’s latest policy regarding extended producer responsibilities for packaging and packaging waste.
