Description

Chemical Regulations: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Dr David Taylor – Chairman, wca Ltd

1800 for 1830 start. 

We have been regulating wastes in the UK since at least 1388 and since the middle of the last century the regulations we apply to wastes and specific chemicals have become increasingly detailed and comprehensive. In the current century it is undoubtedly true that chemical regulation is becoming more globalised and harmonised both regionally and internationally. With such a long pedigree we ought to be getting better at the regulation of chemicals but is this actually true? This presentation, by Dr David Taylor, will look at the current situation and some of the future global trends and drivers, Brexit or no Brexit.

David Taylor is a professional chemist with a PhD in marine chemistry.  A Chartered Chemist he is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.  He sits as the RSC representative on the UK Government’s Chemical Stakeholders Forum. He has 50 years experience of the evaluation, management and resolution of environmental issues in the heavy chemical, specialty chemical, agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.  Until June 2008 he was the Global Director of Environment & Sustainability for the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca, where he was responsible, amongst other things, for the direction of the company research programme in environmental science and heavily involved in the industry response to the issue of pharmaceuticals in the environment. He is now the Chairman of the independent environmental consultancy firm wca.

The talk will last about an hour and there is wine and networking at the end.
