AMI has officially launched its 3rd Plastics Regulations Conference, featuring leading compliance commentators including Steptoe & Johnson, Burges Salmon and Mayer Brown who will give their perspectives on the latest updates within European regulatory framework. The legislative landscape for the plastics industry is ever changing and 2019 looks to be no different. With the increasing interest in issues such as single use plastics, the continued implementation of REACH and increasing uncertainties surrounding Brexit, Plastics Regulations 2019 offers an excellent opportunity for professionals across the supply chain to meet with global regulatory experts and gain impartial information on the latest European regulatory updates, and make sure organisations are compliant with current and future legislation. The two-day conference takes place on the 6-7 March at the Hilton Hotel Dusseldorf, a well-placed city at the heart of the European plastics industry. It will bring together experts in European law, food contact materials and nanomaterials alongside high-profile compliance experts and brand owners. The event offers a platform for industry professionals to meet, learn and connect to get a comprehensive understanding of the future trends in the European chemical framework. Talks will include a senior representative for the European Commission, senior legal professionals from international law firms, in conjunction with leading experts from the EUPC, Intertek, Henkel and EXPRA, alongside a varied range of engaging and knowledgeable speakers.
Furthermore, the conference will be preceded by a one-day workshop on 5th March, which will incorporate an in depth overview of Food Contact Materials within the EU and the US, held by senior experts from Steptoe & Johnson’s transatlantic Food Safety Practice. The one day workshop provides an opportunity to gain knowledge on the latest developments in the pipeline for food contact compliance in the EU and US.
Plastics Regulations will examine the regulatory landscape and look at a variety of different perspectives and looks at what is in store in the future for some of today’s most pressing questions. In addition to delivering quality papers, the conference also offers superb and cost-effective networking opportunities with its extensive table top exhibition area.
