With the new year underway it’s time to focus on new and upcoming regulatory developments that impact your business in the first quarter. Our team of regulatory analysts scoured the globe to bring you the most important updates now available in our on-demand webinar, “2021 Q1 Regulatory Roundup - What You Need to Know.”

Sookie Hong, Sr. Manager, Regulatory Research, APAC provides research, analysis and monitoring of EHS-related governmental legislations and non-EHS related regulations covering South Korea, Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong. In the webinar Sookie discusses the challenges of K-OSHA implementation including inconsistent Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) and Confidential Business Information (CBI) rules between Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ministry of Employment and Labor (MoEL). We are seeing more Asia Pacific countries adopting GHS Rev. 6 or higher. 

Patricia Iscaro, Regulatory Research Manager, the Americas touches on global alignment with GHS. We see Canada making moves to align with the 7th Revised Edition of GHS. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has proposed updates to the agency’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to align with the 7th revision of GHS. Another key takeaway in the Americas region is Chile's new GHS and chemical notification regulation. 

Scott Stephens, Regulatory Research Manager, EMEA, brings the focus to regulatory developments in the Europe, Middle East and Africa regions. Russia has published its chemical inventory which will be part of the EEU Chemicals Register. New details on EEU Technical Regulation on Safety of Chemical Productions are provided by Draft secondary legislation recenlty issued on 17 February. Other regulations to keep an eye on include Ukraine. The country issued drafts of three legislations, introducing EU-like chemicals management framework.
