Keller and Heckman to Host 20th Annual Food Packaging Law Seminar

Keller and Heckman is pleased to announce that its 20th annual Food Packaging Law Seminar will take place September 24 - 25, 2019, in Arlington, Virginia (just outside Washington, D.C.). As an added bonus, this year’s Food Packaging Law Seminar will include a pre-conference workshop on California’s Proposition 65 on September 23. 
Keller and Heckman’s Food Packaging Law Seminar is a must-attend event for regulatory, scientific, and legal professionals throughout the food packaging supply chain—from those new to the industry to seasoned professionals. Comments from previous attendees ranged from “[a] great seminar for anyone in the food packaging industry to gain a basic understanding of the regulations in the U.S. and EU, as well as…other jurisdictions” to “[a]n excellent high-level view of global food packaging.” 
During the seminar, Keller and Heckman’s renowned food packaging attorneys and scientists will provide guidance on how to attain clearances for food-contact materials in jurisdictions around the world, from the U.S., Canada, and South America to Europe, Japan, and China. Attendees will also learn about the latest developments impacting the global food-contact industry with additional presentations on timely topics, such as establishing regulatory status for industry sustainability initiatives and the impact of environmental initiatives on food packaging. The pre-conference workshop on California’s Proposition 65 will include information on establishing safe harbor levels for listed chemicals, benefits and pitfalls of safe use determinations (SUDs), and how to respond to a notice of violation (NOV). 
Hailed as providing “tremendous networking opportunities” with “excellent speakers,” the seminar will afford attendees the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Keller and Heckman attorneys and scientists.
Registration for the Food Packaging Law Seminar is now open. Pricing and event details can be found
