Get an overview of the regional 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, together, they represent the world’s fifth-largest market. 

Whether companies are looking to expand into new markets or shift their supply chain operations, they may need to overcome the chemicals management measures and legislative barriers in place in many of these countries. 

This one-day, online training course is split into two parts and will provide an overview of the regional regulatory landscape.
