Intertek Experts Discuss Regulatory Guidelines and Share Industry Experiences Relating to Food Contact Materials Regulations

March 07, 2019

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be exhibiting and presenting at the upcoming Food Contact Regulations USA conference taking place in Washington, DC from March 19-20, 2019. 

Understanding the safety and regulatory requirements of the food contact materials regulations can be a complex and daunting task, especially when considering marketing products in several jurisdictions. Chemical Watch will bring together regulators, specialist consultants, and industry experts from North and South America to provide the latest developments in federal and state level-legislation along with global food contact materials regulations. 

During the conference, Intertek's Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services (HERS) food contact team will be available at the Intertek booth to discuss how we can best support your company’s specific global regulatory needs. In addition to the exhibition, HERS experts will present during day-one of the main program:
