Green Chemistry Clearinghouse Annual Conference

Aug 10, 2015, 00:51 ET from Green Chemistry Clearinghouse

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- This year's Conference program, organized by Green Chemistry Clearinghouse, focuses on the regulatory developments that businesses face, not only in California, but nationally and internationally. This year we are building on the success from last year's event: Jim Jones, Head of US EPA's TSCA program and Ben Dunham, Senior Advisor to the late U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg, gave their insider's views of the chances for toxic chemical reform in Congress. Karl Palmer, Chief of California's new Safer Consumer Products program, spoke on what manufacturers need to know to comply with California's far-reaching regulation. Former Director of California Department of Toxic Substances Control, Maureen Gorsen, helped attendees unravel the myriad of other states' green chemistry laws.

This year's panels will help businesses negotiate between the multitude of international regulations with experts from Europe, Canada and the US; explore the supply chain challenges in the fashion industry; and the impact of TSCA legislation. Conference attendees will also get an update on California's far-reaching Safer Consumer Products Program and help with finding alternatives for suspect chemicals.

The Green Chemistry Conference is held in conjunction with the Prop. 65 Conference that is held on the previous day.

Green Chemistry Clearinghouse was started in 2013 by its publisher, Lana Beckett, to track key regulatory documents, deadlines and litigation. The Clearinghouse keeps subscribers up-to-date on California's new Safer Consumer Products regulations—including a user friendly, searchable Chemical Database. It covers multiple states' Green Chemistry programs, federal regulatory actions, EU REACH and other international regulatory agencies.
