Asian Helsinki Chemicals Forum conference (HCF) and the 4th Summit Meeting on Chemical Regulations in Asia Pacific (SMCR 2019) will be held in Shanghai in 24-25 October 2019 as a merged conference. The Asian HCF conference will be a shorter version of the 2019 HCF taking place in Helsinki on 23-24 May with high-level keynote speeches and open debate among speakers and public on hot topics in chemicals regulation globally. The three topics will be taken from the five presented in Helsinki as they are equally relevant to Asia. However, the composition of the panels and the audience will be different so that the content and conclusions will be suitable and unique to the Asian context.

SMCR 2019 will invite Government officials and company regulatory experts from China, Japan and Korea to make presentations on updated chemical regulations and compliance issues in those countries.
