Integrating Alternatives Assessment into Your Materials Compliance Strategy
Alternatives assessment has emerged as an important tool to identify sustainable materials and prevent regrettable substitution. The National Academy of Sciences Framework to Guide the Selection of Chemical Alternatives provides a state-of-the-art process that can be used to assess and choose better materials. In this session, the framework will be presented in relation to developing a materials strategy for manufacturers and suppliers that will comply with emerging materials regulations. Lessons learned from a model assessment performed to meet the requirements of the State of California’s Safer Consumer Products Act will be discussed and the session will conclude with an open discussion of the business case for integrating alternatives assessment as a way to select inherently safer alternatives and reduce the impact of future materials restrictions.
