ERM is proud to be speaking and exhibiting at the Chemical Watch Biocides Europe 2023 conference, taking place between 11th and 12th December in Vienna, Austria.
This two-day event will be focusing on the latest developments, challenges, and next steps relating to the biocidal products regulation (BPR).
From eliminating mould to keeping food safe from bugs and insects, biocides play an important part in our everyday lives. Yet, the sector is facing many challenges, and it is vital for stakeholders to take a proactive approach.
Biocides Europe 2023 is a forum where experts from industry and member state competent and regulatory authorities come togetherto share knowledge and guidance through a series of informative presentations, networking, and interactive Q&As. Topics will include staying compliant with criteria for identifying endocrine disrupting (ED) chemicals and the growing push for greater sustainability under the chemicals strategy for sustainability (CSA). Presenters will also examine BPR impacts on claims and labelling and downstream sectors.
Four of our biocides team members will be attending the event in Vienna. They bring a wealth of regional, industry, and topic knowledge. We are looking forward to seeing you during the event – if you are attending, please visit our booth.
