HCPA to Host Ingredient Communication Webinar October 3

The Household and Commercial Products Association (HCPA) is offering a webinar on “Ingredient Communication” on October 3 from 2:00–3:30 pm. To help product manufacturers, formulators and retailers navigate current and emerging federal and state ingredient communication requirements and confidential business information, Bergeson & Campbell, P.C. will present this 90-minute webinar outlining these issues.

The push for greater product ingredient communication has intensified, with no sign of abating. Whether the demand originates from a maturation of right-to-know principles, retailers’ commitments to stewarding their consumer products, or traditional activist groups, thorny legal and practical issues arise. The list is long, but in particular protecting confidential business information (CBI), addressing competing and often inconsistent federal and state communication and labeling requirements, and managing customer and distributor contractual demands are key.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • State Programs in California and New York;
  • Federal Protections under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA);
  • Federal Preemptive Legislative Measures;
  • Supply Chain Contractional Challenges; and
  • Tips to Address Unresolved Legal Issues.
