Evolving US legislation updates for the consumer products industry
Co-organised with Norton Rose Fulbright
As the focus on sustainability in value chains intensifies from both consumers and governments, it’s crucial for manufacturers and suppliers of consumer goods to keep up with recent regulatory changes.
Brands are increasingly seeing the pressing need to implement strong sustainable chemistry methodologies and strategies to align with regulations in the North American region.
Tune in with Jeffrey Margulies, the Partner-in-Charge from Norton Rose Fulbright in Los Angeles and San Francisco, alongside Dr Vikki Addy, the Chief Technical Officer of Eurofins’ Sustainability Services, for an insightful discussion on
- Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) legislation affecting textiles, apparel and other consumer products
- Proposition 65
