|Best Practices for Product & Chemical Compliance Due Diligence in Mergers and Acquisition|
|Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) often involve combinations of new technologies, new products, and new markets. Understanding the potential risks and opportunities from such combinations, and ensuring the ability to sell products and comply with applicable product stewardship regulations in a global marketplace, is a critical part of due diligence. To date there is no international standard that defines how to conduct a product and chemical compliance due diligence assessment and these topics may not always be considered when scoping traditional environmental diligence projects. As such, while M&A transactions can vastly and positively open up a company’s portfolio, gaps in product stewardship can erode the very value proposition of the deal. During this session, practical and tested insights into how to integrate product stewardship into M&A diligence processes to minimize business risks and maximize value and the opportunities emerging from using diligence to develop a cost effective product stewardship post-merger integration plan will be presented.
