WASHINGTON (January 24, 2019) – The American Chemistry Council (ACC) announced the chemical industry’s premier policy and regulatory conference, the Global Chemical Regulations Conference and Exhibition (GlobalChem), will take place in Washington, D.C. from March 6-8, 2019, at the OMNI Shoreham Hotel.

The three-day conference will explore the continued lessons stakeholders have learned from and strategies for the successful implementation of the 2016 amendments to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

“This year’s GlobalChem conference comes at a critical point in the implementation of TSCA, and it offers us all—those from industry, the regulatory community and other stakeholders—the opportunity to meet and discuss the most important issues concerning the business of chemistry,” said ACC President and CEO Cal Dooley. “At the heart of it all is an ongoing dialogue about how we all can help ensure the law achieves what Congress intended: protecting human health and the environment; enhancing public confidence in the federal chemical regulatory system; and enabling our industry to continue to innovate, create jobs and grow the economy.”

The 2019 agenda includes sessions about expectations for TSCA implementation in the next five to ten years; 2019 priorities for EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention; international trade policy; emerging contaminants in drinking water; Korea Reach and Taiwan; EU and REACH updates; and much more.

Before the official conference opens, there will be an optional workshop day on Wednesday, March 6, for attendees to explore the fundamentals of the amendments to TSCA, including:

  • New Chemicals Program: What to Submit and How to Work with Your PMN Manager
  • Risk Evaluations: What to do When Your Chemical is Designated High Priority
  • TSCA Fees Basics
  • Understanding Confidential Business Information
  • Toxicology 101

Beveridge & Diamond PC is the principal sponsors of this year’s conference and exhibition, and Keller and Heckman LLP is this year’s reception sponsor.
