NACD’s Regulatory Compliance Resource Guide for Chemical Distributors and Regulatory Applicability Checklist provide a solid foundation of information on the plethora of federal regulations applicable to the industry. At 34 and 23 pages and growing, these documents can be overwhelming to even the most experienced chemical distribution regulatory professional. During this workshop, subject matter experts will dive into the major regulatory requirements from the Guide and Checklist to review the most important provisions of each rule and will direct you to helpful resources to keep your company in compliance for each of these rules.
