Intertek to Present at AMI’s Plastics Regulations 2018

February 19, 2018

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be presenting at AMI's Plastics Regulations taking place from March 14-15, 2018 at the Maritim Hotel in Cologne, Germany.

This two-day conference will provide attendees the latest information on various international legislative and regulatory issues.

As the last REACH registration deadline for existing chemicals is quickly approaching, and the ever-changing food contact legislation, Plastics Regulations 2018 will provide registrants the opportunity to gain impartial and well-informed guidance focused specifically on the needs of the plastics industry. The Plastics Regulations conference will be important for key stakeholders in the industry such as polymer producers, compounders, processors and end users to learn the most cost and time efficient ways to protect their business. This is a must-attend event for individuals involved in the polymer supply chain to determine whether they are compliant with the most current and upcoming chemicals legislation.

Attendees will have the chance to learn from industry experts about new and approaching regulations in areas such as REACH, food contact materials, printing inks, biocides and the circular economy. Additionally, they will gain insight into global plastics legislation and regulation updates, understand the real implications of forthcoming legislation in practical terms, and will have the opportunity to network with international regulatory, compliance and legal professionals.

Some of the topics that will be covered during this conference include:

  • REACH: regulation and compliance
  • Food contact materials: compliance and global regulations
  • Forthcoming challenges including Brexit and how to stay ahead of changes
  • Pre-conference workshop: Food Contact Materials 101 EU and US - what you need to know
