Keith Pennington - Muddy Waters: A Brief History of Chemical Regulation Keith will talk about the development of regulations in the chemical industry and differences around the world. Enforcement issues, near-future developments and why the EU is the safest place in the world. Films like Dark Waters and Erin Brockovich have raised the profile of chemical regulation in the general public; Keith will attempt to expand on this and look at how there are significant differences in the way various countries look at this.
