2. Objective and Overview
- Objective Today:
- Product Stewardship Fundamentals
- Business Impacts/Applicability
- Regulatory Drivers
- Approaches and Actions
3. What is Product Stewardship?
- Product Safety Support
- Is the product safe and sustainable as used for humans and the environment at all stages of product lifecycle from raw material sourcing, manufacturing, to marketing/use and disposal/recycle?
- Toxicology, ecotoxicology, physical/chemical property assessment to identify hazards (ex. PBT), fate & transport and impact assessment, and assistance in selection ofGreener Alternatives
- This is quantitatively managed via Risk Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment tailored to the appropriate audience whether workers, customers, regulators, the public, or NGOs.
- Chemical Product Hazard Classification, MSDSs, and Labeling is a key issue that impacts global business (i.e., GHS/CLP).
4. What is Product Stewardship?
- 2. Global Product Regulatory Compliance
- Strategic and technical support to meet current and emerging regulatory compliance requirements
- New and existing chemical product registration at federal, state, and international levels:
- Chemicals, Pesticides, Drugs, Feed Additives, Consumer Products and durable goods across US, Canada, EU, China, South Korea, Japan
- Improved speed to market via ability to replicate regulators decision making schemes to gain government approvals of new products ASAP
- EU REACHlegislation is a gigantic product re-registration issue with global business impacts and it is expanding globally
- Hazard classification, labeling, MSDS, product defense, Nanotechnologies, customs certification and supply chain issues like Walmart/Kmart registration
5. The squeeze Operations Your Customers Their Customers (Consumers) Sources& Suppliers End of Life Products& Services Supplier Resistance Market and Regulatory Expectations 6. Three business questions
- What is in your products?
- What is the chemical composition?
- If you have these data, are they in a smart-searchable and automatable database system?
- What matters?
- What product performance claims are you making?
- What obligations or restrictions do you need to be concerned about in the markets where you ship them?
- What can you do about it?
- Can you comply, substitute, or reduce?
- Can you educate regulators or customers?
- Are there other business options to consider?
7. Three business approaches
- Put technical issues into business terms
- Understand business impacts
- Use business language
- Look for both risk and opportunities
- Risks of product deselection and operating disruption are real
- Dealing with risks faster and better than the competition creates opportunities
- Build collaborative solutions
- Inside your company- probably not your traditional network
- Beyond your company, starting with business partners up- and down-stream

Product Global Regulatory Compliance Challenges
- The global proliferation of chemical control and downstream product regulations and restrictions is a major challenge facing Multi-National Corporations (MNCs)
- In business terms this represents a strategic barrier to innovation and a major source of enterprise risk that MNCs are not all suitably positioned to control
- As these regulations have evolved.
- No two are alike
- They tend to have global supply chain impacts beyond the specific national jurisdiction
- Net, the cost of international business is increasing, and product & supply chain compliance and stewardship is becoming a critical business function
- A significant burden, but also a potential source of opportunity and competitive advantage
- Key Points:
- Nearly 10-fold increase in number of emerging environmental regulations globally within the last 8-yrs!
- Focus on substance related regulations in the coming years (REACH, GHS/CLP, TSCA, Safe Chemicals Act etc)
- Key Point:
- General increasing trend of the number of environmental regulations on a global-scale
- Dynamic switch in recent year from EU & AP to US and Canada
- Technical progress and milestones for implementation of regulations entered into force in previous years are becoming increasingly important to follow.
14. 15. GE notes critical nature of product stewardship
- GE Citizenship 2009 Global Focus on Regulations
Released July 20, 2010 Examples include the release of a Product Stewardship toolkit as an interactive, user-friendly and relevant framework in support of R&D, Product Design/Re-design and launch to market. 16. EnterpriseRisk? SOME EXAMPLES
- Global Product Stewardship/Compliance KEY in supporting ability to sustain:
- global product development;
- global market access;
- global company reputation
Product Global Regulatory Compliance Challenges Strategic
- Risk that can affect Brand and demand for your products
