knoell Symposium 2021 - thank you for participating

We would like to thank you all for following our invitation to this year’s Symposium on "Chemical Control Regulations in Asia & the Americas".

For the first time held as online event, so not knowing how acceptance would be, we are very pleased to be able to look back and consider it as a great success in terms of exchanging knowledge, experiences and opinions.

The presentations covered a wide range of countries around the globe and provided a comprehensive overview on the latest developments in chemical regulations. With more than 80 participants from 12 nations and 10 speakers from 4 continents the international exchange was fruitful and discussions lively.

With the positive response from participants and speakers, we are pleased to announce that we will celebrate the 10th anniversary of our Symposium in 2022 - hopefully as an in-person event again.

If you are selling your products internationally, regulatory compliance should not be a “Terra incognita”.

An incomplete world map of the numerous regulations related to marketing and safe use of chemical products may get you into stormy seas and can have a potentially disruptive impact on your supply chain. You might not even be aware that your product is subject to a chemical regulation.

However, to play by the rules, you have to know them.

Our conference, shifted from 2020 and now in new format as online event,  will focus on potential impacts on industry and best practices to prepare for the foreseeable consequences. We will provide a comprehensive overview on new and amended chemical legislation and regulatory procedures in numerous important markets mainly focusing on the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region, also including India for the first time.

Topics include

  • Chemical safety management in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU)
  • KKDIK – Turkish REACh
  • Registration and evaluation of chemicals in Korea
  • Management of new and existing chemicals in China
  • Management of new and existing chemicals in Taiwan
  • Existing and new substances under the LSCA - New TSCA
  • Existing and new substance notification in Canada
  • Chemical regulations in several ASEAN countries
  • Overview about chemical regulations in the Middle East
  • The reform of NICNAS in Australia
