Chemical distributors focus on best practices, safety, partnerships, and regulatory compliance

Nearly 420 chemical distributors from across the country are gathering in New Orleans this week for ChemEdge, the leading chemical distribution operations and management conference in the United States hosted annually by the National Association of Chemical Distributors.

Attendees will participate in three days of in-depth education and insight into important regulatory, operational, and management issues, as well as best practices in the chemical distribution industry.

At ChemEdge, members will attend a series of training and educational sessions and panel discussions led by experts sharing insights into management and operational excellence. This year, NACD is offering two intensive pre-conference workshops: one on NACD Responsible Distribution®, the association's third-party-verified environmental, health, safety, and security program, and another on the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

"Chemical distributors are impacted by issues as far-ranging as food safety management and autonomous vehicle implementation to unmanned aircraft systems and physical site security. We are excited to once again provide NACD members valuable resources and educational training in these issue areas and more at this year's ChemEdge in New Orleans," said Eric R. Byer, president of NACD. "Not only are we offering tremendous sessions to help members meet the highest standards and stay up-to-date on the latest trends and regulations, we are also hosting intensive pre-conference workshops to give our members the extra edge."

Bayer will join NACD Vice President of Regulatory Affairs Jennifer Gibson to address how regulations and tax reform impact the industry and share the NACD resources available to help members in their compliance needs.
