The business of chemicals is being impacted by measures being taken by governments as well as industry stakeholders to improve all aspects of chemical management, from production and processing to distribution, use, and disposal. Governments across the globe are increasingly aware of the need for heightened and improved management of chemicals. Along with improved management standards developed by the chemical industry, international governments have been enhancing their domestic management programs and increasing their levels of regulatory control.
Global Chemical Control Handbook keeps practitioners abreast of these important developments—what they are, on what segment of the global supply chain they apply, and when and how these measure impact the business of chemicals. Providing a broad overview of key chemical management programs in the United States, Europe, Asia, and Central and South America, this book describes the key laws and their regulatory implementation in these jurisdictions. The authors provide a basic understanding of each law and help practitioners identify key business issues of concern.
While pointing the way to further, more granular research, Global Chemical Control Handbook explains how a country’s chemical management program works, and facilitates an understanding of how the law might apply to a product line, while also helping the practitioner anticipate the transactional impact and enforcement opportunities a country’s regulatory program presents.
