Eastern Europe: A Regulatory Update

Since 2009, there has been significant growth in environmental, health and safety regulation in Eastern Europe.  Over the past year alone, we have seen consistent growth in various categories including chemicals management, water management, air emissions, waste management and product stewardship.

Growth in these areas can be attributed to a variety of reasons, including a more international approach to harmonizing labelling and packaging of chemicals (GHS), a greater focus on the reduction of greenhouse gases and other climate change initiatives, as well as the fact that as more countries within this region continue to seek candidacy into the European Union (EU), transposing EU specific laws have been high on the agenda.

Drawing on Enhesa's expertise in monitoring EHS regulations, Enhesa consultants crafted this webinar to assist companies in understanding and anticipating the EHS regulatory developments in Eastern Europe. With over 64% of attendees finding the task of tracking legislation and/or regulatory developments in Eastern Europe to be difficult, our team analyzed both proposed and passed EHS regulations to identify the key EHS policies that will impact business in 2014 and beyond.

Regulatory developments and trends discussed in this webinar included:

  • Industrial Emissions Directive
  • The European Pollutant Release and Transfer Register
  • Chemical Management (REACH/CLP)
  • Air Protection
  • Emissions Trading Scheme
  • Water Management
  • Major Hazard Installations
