Hi everyone,

We would like to remind everyone of the opportunity to do a talk about regulations concerning the safe use, storage and disposal of chemicals. We are looking to have talks from a variety of perspectives.. Some areas that could be covered include:

Regulations that are written for the industrial setting, but cover laboratory use of chemicals;

New science or technology and regulations that should cover these;

Expected response to releases;

Information available on the hazards with chemicals and how this can or should be regulated;

Litigation  and its impacts on policies and regulation.


There are many other topics that would fit into this symposium.


If you are interested in doing a talk, please contact Ralph or myself directly.
