ERM will be actively participating at the upcoming Chemical Watch AsiaHub Summit in Brussels, with two confirmed speakers on the topics Global data sharing and management and Taiwan-REACH.
The 2018 Summit addresses the impact of the latest developments in chemicals regulation in Asia, offering an opportunity to discuss all aspects of how to get products into Asian markets through an engaging mix of presentations, Q&A sessions, informal networking opportunities and panel discussions featuring senior government officials from the Chinese Government and other experts from Asian countries.
Day one of the Summit will focus on the latest developments in China, while day two will cover updates from the rest of Asia, including Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, and Malaysia. In addition, the programme includes timely updates from Japan, India and Australia.
ERM at the Conference
ERM is pleased to play an active role at the Chemical Watch AsiaHub Summit 2018, sharing our insights on “Strategy and roadmap to comply with changing regulations”, to support the industry in addressing chemical regulations in the region. As well as speaking at the conference, ERM will also engage with clients and other professionals throughout the event.
ERM & Product Stewardship
The focus on product stewardship has intensified over recent years, due in large part to demand from consumers for greater supply chain transparency and safer, ‘greener’ products. Purchasers, consumers, regulators, and investors are increasingly focused on how and where products are sourced, developed, manufactured, distributed, used, and disposed, along with a product’s overall impacts at each life cycle stage. This focus on product stewardship has also been driven by the growing array of environmental, health, safety and, sustainability (EHSS) regulations.
ERM’s approach to product stewardship not only seeks ways to avoid product impoundment or recall, which can disrupt supply chains, increase costs and damage brand and reputation. It also aims to identify and mitigate these risks while looking beyond them to assess key product and brand differentiators that have the potential to drive innovation, and contribute to the bottom line.
