AMI’s Plastics Regulations conference provides expert analysis and guidance on a range of international legislative and regulatory issues that will impact on polymer producers, compounders, processors and end users doing business in the US and beyond. The two-day conference takes place in Pittsburgh, PA on December 11-12. Legal and regulatory experts will cover new and impending regulations in areas such as TSCA, product stewardship, biomaterials, single-use plastics, plastics waste and the Circular Economy. Key stakeholders from Europe will also address issues from across the Atlantic affecting the plastics supply chain in the US.
