5 Reasons to Attend the Restricted Substances & Product Compliance Forum

The regulatory landscape is in a constant state of flux, and failing to stay on top of trends as they evolve can lead to setbacks. Products may need to be redesigned, retested and repackaged, resulting in significant losses for your business.

Education plays a key role in a company’s ability to stay ahead of these regulatory changes, maintain market access and develop efficient processes to remain compliant, both today and in the future. On May 11th, 2017, Assent will host the Restricted Substances & Product Compliance Forum in Chicago, facilitating this learning and providing strategic guidance to attendees.

At this one-day conference in Chicago, you’ll get access to industry experts, workshops and educational offerings that can be applied directly to your materials management program. We’ll also provide you with timely updates on recent product compliance trends.

Here are five reasons why you can’t afford to miss this vital learning opportunity:

You will experience presentations from speakers such as: Will Janisch, Senior Manager of Global Environmental Compliance with Baxter International Inc.; Valerie Kuntz, Materials Management Subject Matter Expert at Assent Compliance; and James Calder,Vice-President of Compliance & Regulatory Programs at Assent Compliance.

2. Actionable Insights

Benefit from proactive teachings geared toward providing immediate actionable insights for attendees to implement in their materials management compliance program.

3. Educational Tools

Although much of the forum will be geared toward providing you with strategies you can use right away, you will also benefit from information sessions on how to plan for and navigate a wide range of national and international materials management regulations on an ongoing basis.

Don’t take it from us, here is what one of our past attendees had to say:

“Our team attended an Assent Compliance conference earlier this year to get a new team member up-to-speed on the daily issues we deal with in our compliance department, and to increase our overall knowledge and understanding of certain key regulations. We were very satisfied with the results.”

– Holly Baxter, Integrator Parts Coordinator, TMEIC
