Presentation Title : The impact of the European Poison Centres on global organisations

Abstract :The regulations for poison centre notification within Europe for organisations putting hazardous mixtures on the market are complex and difficult to achieve. These regulations are made more complicated due to the harmonisation effort, which affects notifications from 2020 but does not excuse organisations from notifying their products today, which is currently a legislative requirement. This session will review the regulations now, and in the future, what organisations should do, and the current cost of non-compliance (using examples of enforcement across various member states). We will also outline the best process to follow to develop a strategic ‘battle plan’ to complete notifications, taking into account risk of enforcement, cost of notification, implications on Intellectual Property, etc.

Presentation Title : Brexit an impact on Chemical Regulation for UK A&S manufacturers

Part of BASA daily feature session (11.00 – 12.00 noon) – hosted by British Association of Sealants & Adhesives (BASA)

Abstract: As this abstract is being written it is far from clear whether the UK will leave the EU (with or without a deal). Whatever deal the UK leaves the EU with, or in the event of no-deal, HSE’s stated approach to regulation is to preserve the UK’s high standards in health and safety and to continue to protect people and the environment. This presentation will look at the current key chemical’s regulations affecting adhesives and sealant manufactures and their related supply chain and will focus on the key steps that have to be taken to comply with the current UK regulations
