knoell Symposium 2022

Thank you for participating

On 17 May 2022, the 10th knoell Symposium on "Global Chemical Control Regulations" took place in Cologne again after a break of two years.

10th knoell symposium on global chemical control regulations - 17 May 2022 in Cologne

Chemical regulations across the globe are becoming more and more strict and complex. Hence, if you want to be a successful global player, in addition to innovative and high-grade products you need global regulatory excellence to power your business and to avoid a disruptive impact on your supply chains.

You have to know which rules apply and which of your products might be affected, whereas in some cases it is not obvious in the first place that chemical regulations (and which ones) are applicable for your products in your target markets.

In our symposium we will explain how to play the game correctly and will focus on best practices to prepare for the foreseeable challenges. We will provide a comprehensive overview and update on new and amended chemical legislations and regulatory procedures in numerous important markets.

Topics include

  • The new chemicals safety and management rules in India
  • Current challenges under TSCA in the USA
  • Overview about chemical regulations in Latin America
  • How to deal with AICIS in Australia
  • KKDIK – Turkish REACh
  • Chemical regulations in several ASEAN countries
  • Registration and evaluation of chemicals in Korea
  • Management of new and existing chemicals in China
  • Management of new and existing chemicals in Taiwan
