Plastics Regulations 2018 will provide expert analysis and guidance on a range of international legislative and regulatory issues that will impact on polymer producers, compounders, processors and end users. Organised by AMI, the two-day conference takes place in Cologne, Germany on 14-15 March 2018.
The conference will once again provide a rare opportunity to gain focused advice on a range of compliance issues at one event, providing a cost- and time efﬁcient way to protect and future-proof your business. Highlights from the 2017 conference include:
The programme will feature legal and regulatory experts covering new and impending regulations in areas such as REACH, food contact materials, biocides, nanomaterials, microplastics, medical devices, the waste directive, plastic recycling and various application specific legal requirements. They explain the real implications of forthcoming legislation in practical terms, highlighting the actions that different players in the plastics supply chain need to take to achieve compliance. Speakers also highlight areas of potential concern for the plastics industry going forward and recommended action to minimise negative impacts.
With the last REACH registration deadline for existing chemicals fast approaching, the conference provides a well-timed opportunity to gain impartial and well-informed guidance focused speciﬁcally on the needs of the plastics industry as well as the next steps in the REACH process. Whatever your role in the polymer supply chain, you will receive vital information on how to ensure your company is compliant with current and future chemicals legislation.
Food contact legislation is another evolving subject that has signiﬁcant implications for the suppliers of polymers, additives, compounds and masterbatch, as well as the producers of food packaging and food processing equipment. Legal experts review existing and planned regulations in this area and provide advice on how to meet them. Speakers also address other areas of legislation that have critical implications for the plastics industry, including the use of recycled plastics, the EU waste directive, biocides, nanomaterials and medical devices. The event will focus predominantly on European legislation and regulations.
Don’t get caught out by new legislative developments. Attend Plastics Regulations 2018 to discover the most effective ways to protect your business and ensure compliance.

What if I cannot attend an AMI event because of bad weather, industrial action, sickness or bereavement?
Unfortunately AMI cannot take responsibility for such problems. We recommend that you ensure that your travel plans leave you enough spare time to cope with weather delays or industrial action and that your travel insurance policy will recompense you for any financial loss that you suffer as a result of being unable to travel for other reasons. Remember that if you cannot attend an event then you can always send a colleague in your place at no charge.
Do I need a visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event?
It is entirely possible that you may need a valid visa to enter a country where AMI is holding an event. This is especially the case for individuals attending our events and holding non-European passports. We recommend that at the time of booking you check the visa requirements with the embassy of the host country in your home location. We are unable to give refunds to delegates who cannot attend conferences because they fail the visa requirements of the country concerned.
Does the conference programme ever change?
AMI always does its utmost to avoid changes in advertised conference programmes. However it is a fact of life that from time to time amendments have to be made as a result of changes to speakers’ circumstances or corporate change. Remember that you can always check with our conference staff on the latest status of any conference programme.
Can I give a paper at an AMI Conference?
Naturally AMI welcomes offers of papers for presentation at our conferences provided such papers meet our quality and relevance requirements. Within each conference heading you will find a section on ‘Call for Papers’, which tells you what to do if you want to offer to present a paper at a specific conference.
