Intertek to Sponsor, Present and Exhibit at GlobalChem 2018

January 24, 2018

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, is proud to be a sponsor, presenter and exhibitor at the upcoming GlobalChem conference taking place In Washington, DC from February 28 - March 2, 2018.

Every year GlobalChem brings together the chemical industry to discuss the unique challenges and opportunities associated with chemical regulatory compliance and risk management. GlobalChem is the ideal platform for industry professionals to review the latest developments in global chemicals management while learning about some of the most pressing issues the industry faces. This is a must-attend event for stakeholders looking for guidance in navigating the complex regulatory landscape. Since the passage of the Lautenberg Chemical Safety Act amendments to the U.S. Toxics Substances Control Act (TSCA), the industry has the necessary tools to ensure the safety of chemicals and significantly strengthen health protections. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore lessons learned and discuss strategies for successful implementation of the TSCA amendments throughout the value chain.

During the event, Intertek Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services expert, Rose Passarella, Senior Manager, Regulatory, will be speaking in the Regulatory Developments in South America breakout session on Thursday, March 1st. This session will provide an overview of the regulatory developments in the region as well as discuss regulatory cooperation opportunities and efforts to facilitate regional alignment towards risk-based chemicals management and GHS implementation.

Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is high on the priority list for many companies in North America. With the upcoming REACH deadline on May 31, 2018 quickly approaching, Intertek is able to offer a single-source solution to address your specific needs and address the many challenges already identified.  Intertek’s Chemicals Group can provide element-specific support for any stage of REACH registration including: pre-registration, SIEF participation, communication with supply chain actors, exposure scenarios, risk assessments, technical dossier preparation, Chemical Safety Assessments (CSA), Chemical Safety Reports (CSR), REACH testing, and registration submission, or complete project management of all REACH requirements for either a chemical or a company. Joyce Borkhoff, Vice President, Chemicals Group states, “Time is getting extremely tight as the REACH 2018 deadline approaches.
