Planning for 2014’s Critical Regulatory Obligations

Complimentary Webinar, Thursday, August 29, 2013,
8:00am-9:00am PDT (11:00am-12:00pm EDT, 4:00am-5:00pm GMT)

Most of us working in product stewardship have experienced increased due diligence demands in 2013, which has resulted from the passage of the US SEC Conflict Minerals Rules, the Recast of the RoHS Directive, and the continuing development of EU REACH. The combined impact of these obligations has caused many corporations’ internal regulatory affairs and EH&S departments to take on a workload that exceeds resources and/or expertise.

Concurrently, the ability to effectively organize and integrate the volume of product stewardship data required to satisfy fee paying extended producer responsibility legislation, substance control regulations, and sustainability initiatives has swiftly evolved from an auxiliary activity to a primary corporate function necessary for growing market access. Moreover, the global expansion of product, substance, and material related regulations continues to accelerate in both complexity and diversity. As a greater number of countries adopt similar legislation, companies’ must race to keep up with pressing immediate obligations, while exercising the necessary foresight to leverage their existing work to cope with the potential revenue impacts of tomorrow’s compliance obligations.

Foresite is offering a complementary webinar on Thursday, August 29, 2013 from 8:00AM-9:00AM PDT (11:00AM-12:00PM EDT, 4:00PM-5:00PM GMT) that will provide you with a roadmap for you to develop an integrated flexible Global Environmental Management System.
