The Pros and Cons of Alternative Working Arrangements and Regulatory Requirements in Implementing Such Programs

The Pros and Cons of Alternative Working Arrangements and Regulatory Requirements in Implementing Such Programs

Location: , United States
Category: Education
Start Date: 04-13-2011 Last Day: 04-13-2011

EU authorities have responded with new regulations and procedures intended to prevent such contamination. The US is likely to follow. In the US, users and producers of food packaging are responsible for insuring that no chemicals from printing inks migrate into the packaged product. With basic testing protocols for demonstrating that chemicals from these inks do not migrate into…
