2013 Global EHS Regulatory Forecast

In 2009, Enhesa's global forecast focused heavily on rapid EHS developments happening around the world, and particularly in the "BRIC" countries. Today in 2013, Enhesa is able to reflect on the 2009 forecast and look at how the trends identified then have evolved. Over the intervening years we have seen several countries make bold changes and we have witnessed enforcement intensity dramatically increase in several unexpected jurisdictions.

In addition, Enhesa is witnessing shifts in attention to specific topic areas. Although we continue to see a global emphasis on chemical legislation, we now also see increased regulations and proposals on energy use and efficiency, air emissions generally and product regulation. As amendments are introduced to the content and structure of ISO 14001 - with a greater emphasis on on-going management of regulatory compliance, we also expect to see a broader cultural shift towards staying on top of the laws that apply to you, wherever you operate.

This webinar specifically explored:

  • Global EHS regulatory trends in growth of legislation, topic areas and enforcement practices
  • The latest developments and future predictions of what's to come in the areas of:
    • Chemicals
    • Air Emissions & Energy Policy
    • Health & Safety
    • Products
    • Management & Enforcement
