On-demand webinar held by Science Separation | Indoor air quality | The science and regulations behind the headlines
This on-demand event covers the subject of Volatile and Semi-Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs and SVOCs) from products and materials which are increasingly subject to regulation in many countries.
This increased legislation is coupled with consumer-led awareness and demand for a reduction in the potential health risks posed by indoor chemical emissions; leading to a need for improved assessment and labelling of consumer and industrial / construction products.
Manufacturers of products used indoors and their supply chains are impacted by this changing chemical emissions regulatory landscape effecting products such as wooden products, toys, domestic goods, cleaning products, flooring, paint, insulation materials, coatings, adhesives and sealants.
This webinar addresses the wide range of regulatory and market pressures placed on manufacturers to limit chemical emissions from products and materials, along with case studies.
