|Global Polymer Regulation and Notification|
|Due to the high molecular weight that prevents migration across biological membranes, polymers are generally regulated differently than discreet chemicals, especially in the requirements for notification of “new” polymers. Although there are similarities among the various global chemical control laws, there are also significant differences. In order to take advantage of the relief afforded this class of substances, it is important to understand some underlying concepts. During this session, international differences in nomenclature, definitions, and rules for polymer exemptions will be covered. Strategies for notifications of new polymers around the globe will also be discussed.
