About ChemCon Conferences

ChemCon Conferences was initiated in 1996 to serve the chemical sector as a regular event dealing with issues of regulatory affairs. Legal compliance of chemical substances and products in a worldwide market is a great challenge. So this platform was created to enable an exchange of experience, hear and discuss political views and opinions as well as legal interpretations between the authorities and the companies. Since 1998 it has been named "ChemCon" as a synonym for International Chemical Control Legislation. According to the needs and feedback of the delegates today, trade aspects of these regulatory issues are also taken into account.

After establishing the conference on a biannual basis in Europe (since 1996) and the Asian branch (since 2003) a well received Americas branch was created starting in 2007 which makes ChemCon now an annual global event shifting between Europe, Asia-Pacific and the Americas. For many years already an exhibition is accompanying the conferences, enabling the regulatory affair managers of the chemical sector to get in touch with companies offering services to the chemical sector like Contract Research Organisations and IT compliance solution providers and to get an easy overview of the different services offered.

Today ChemCon as such is said to be the world's leading global conference series in the field of chemical control regulation that brings together hundreds of experts of competent authorities, international organizations and institutions as well as company and scientific experts, lawyer and politicians to discuss chemical control legislation around the globe with the overall aim of harmonisation in classification, labelling and risk communication to secure high and harmonised standards for environment, health and safety for all related to handling chemical substances, preparations or products.

Accordingly ChemCon Conferences cover a variety of aspects of international chemical control around the globe with a focus on new chemicals' notification, chemical inventories, existing chemicals' assessment, classification and labelling, hazard communication, product registration and risk assessment. In addition several seminars or workshops on specific issues are accompanying the conference sessions (on the pre- and/or post-conference day).

Every program is developed together with the program advisory committee by members (all experts in their field of business and all related to the chemical sector) so the highest level of up-to-date information is guaranteed. But not only training and regulatory affair is the key objective of ChemCon. Also networking with your peers in other companies or authorities and building of new business relations is a primary focus of ChemCon and its accompanying exhibition. Therefore every conference also has an extra social event where people can meet besides the very intense program and talk business or just relax and enjoy the exceptional locations and amenities of those evenings.
