Keller and Heckman to Host Annual EU Food Packaging Law Seminar in Düsseldorf

Keller and Heckman’s 2022 EU Food Packaging Law Seminar will return to an in-person format. The seminar will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany on April 5-6. A special feature of this year’s seminar is a Sustainability Pre-Conference Workshop, which will take place on April 4.

Seminar sessions will cover the basics of EU and U.S. food-contact legislation, in addition to the latest food packaging requirements in China, Japan, and Latin America’s Mercosur countries. Additional presentations on specific EU-related regulations by Keller and Heckman food packaging attorneys and scientists will include technical requirements for establishing compliance, changes introduced by the Transparency Regulation, implications of the New Drinking Water Directive, and an update on National legislation. 

Attendees at the Sustainability Pre-Conference Workshop will learn about the EU’s goals for a circular economy—especially those that impact food packaging. Sessions on the EU’s Single-Use Plastics Directive (SUPD) will include an overview of its scope and main provisions and details on Member State implementation of the Directive. Presentations on the revision of the EU’s Recycled Plastics Regulation, along with a discussion on the timeline for adoption, and the requirements for making recyclable, biodegradable, degradable, and compostable claims will round out the program. 

In addition to questions and answer sessions after the presentations, seminar attendees will have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Keller and Heckman’s internationally recognized food packaging attorneys and scientists. A former attendee stated, “I am always impressed with Keller and Heckman attorneys/scientists and their depth and knowledge of complex legislation and their ability to explain that in simple terms to attendees.”

Registration for the seminar is currently open. Pricing and event details can be found here.
