About the Conference

We are proud to announce the launch of the Asian Chemicals Forum (ACF) organized by the Regulatory Representatives and Managers Association (RRMA) and Helsinki Chemicals Forum (HCF) with Global Product Compliance (GPC) Group as the principal sponsor. RRMA and HCF are non-profit organizations promoting the global chemical safety management dialogue. ACF will take place for the first time in New Delhi, India and marks the first step in bringing HCF's thematic discussions to Asia, as we work towards achieving our global vision of a sustainable and safe chemical industry worldwide.  

The chemical safety management landscape is evolving rapidly in Asian countries, especially in India and other SEA countries, which drives the global sustainable change in the right direction while creating new opportunities for industry innovations. Nevertheless, this is followed by increased expectations and challenges of operational adaptations, and new regulatory terrains to navigate through for all impacted stakeholders.

The ACF conference will cover a wide range of topics related to safe chemical management. Through engaging governmental officials, industry leaders, NGOs, and academics from key regions and countries in Europe and Asia, the conference will offer comparative and prospective perspectives. The ACF conference aims to cover essential subjects related to the transitional journey to safer chemical management, while incorporating viewpoints from all stakeholders as well as sectoral and transition phase perspectives.
