Global commerce, local rules in food contact
Emerging markets like China, India, Brazil and Russia present a wealth of exciting
opportunities for consumer products companies and the entire packaging supply chain.
However, regulations in these new markets can be hard to get a clear ! understanding of, are
often contradictory to established markets and i nconsistently enforced.
By pooling the resources, knowledge and expertise of some of the world's largest and most
influential companies in the packaging supply chain, Intertech-Pira has brought together an
important forum to discuss this growing topic. With an unrivalled program of industry leaders
flying in from around the globe, Food Contact Regulations in Emerging Markets is a must

emerging markets around the world!

A new regulation for a more effective Registration, Evaluation, Authorization of Chemicals
(REACH) in the EU has been in the pipeline for almost a decade. Since the White Paper was
published in 2001, it has been surrounded by immense controversy and lobbying. But REACH
is rapidly transforming into a reality that every manufacturer or downstream user needs to
prepare for. Now with final meetings ! planned for mid December, a 2007 roll out looks
imminent. The time for debate has passed, and key practical steps need to be taken on now!
