Why should you attend?

For a successful launch proving that your Plastic’s Product is safe for NIAS/NLS is mandatory. It is either done by gaining approval from the EU National Legislation (as per (EU) NO/2011) or providing risk assessment via Internationally recognized principles. Yet on the flipside, there is no proper guidance or comprehensive list of NIAS/NLS from the authorities itself.


This weakens the position of manufacturers leaving them vulnerable during assessment making the unsatisfactory use of Unlisted Chemicals one of the most common points for rejection. This also hinders the capability of manufacturers to work with current and future innovations. And with changing regulations, the hovering fear of getting penalized and chances of product withdrawal becomes almost imminent for your old product.


Join our course and make your process of compliance straightforward by:


  • Establishing a clear compliance strategy by knowing how to deal with Unlisted Chemicals and NIAS.
  • Make your product market ready by proper guidance of Chemical Analysis and Risk Assessment under regulation (EU) NO 10/2011.
  • Start your journey to achieve Compliance Certification faster by learning to show compliance for unlisted substances and create a proper declaration for your food packaging.
