REACH / TASCA / ROHS / Global Harmonization SEM-002

Monday, October 7, 2013 * 1:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m.

The world of chemical compliance is rapidly changing. Rising resource costs to manage programs that review the chemical constituents of products are driving administrative costs through the roof. These programs determine if the produced goods can be brought to market based on a geographic region. How a company manages these programs is vital to ensure that the risks and liabilities are properly mitigated. The intent of this course is to broach the topic for our industry and begin the conversation between our experts. Materials will be presented, which will give you an understanding of the main compliance issues facing our industry (such as REACH, Rolls, Conflict Minerals, and GHS) and their effect on US manufacturing. This information will enable you to provide your organization with the understanding and support necessary to successfully protect your company and your customers.

Material Considerations for Medical Devices and Pharmaceutical Products SEM-004

Tuesday, October 8, 2013 * 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

This course is designed for engineers, chemists, material designers and supply chain specialists that are interested in learning more about materials that are used in pharmaceutical applications. There is a variety of regulations and expectations for these materials. Basic concepts in managing material changes in the context of this complex environment will be reviewed. After this overview is presented, in-depth training will focus on the selection and qualification of materials.

Development of an effective strategy for medical device material selection will be demonstrated. The selection process will be defined and the necessary technical, business, and regulatory inputs identified. It includes examples of the tools necessary to document the critical to quality requirements for the device and translate them in to material requirements to support the selection process. A case study will be reviewed to demonstrate the impact of an effective material selection strategy.

Qualification of materials involves several types of testing. Depending on the pharmaceutical application different strategies may be adopted. The participants will be introduced to the various types of testing and be guided through the process of developing an appropriate testing strategy. The use of risk analysis and other tools will be demonstrated. Relevant examples will be given to illustrate interpretation of test results to determine qualification status.

The workshop will conclude with two case studies that illustrate how regulations and industry expectations for pharmaceutical materials can be reasonably addressed. Perspectives from a raw material supplier and component fabricator will be represented.

Learning objectives for this workshop include:

* developing an understanding of regulatory and industry expectations for materials used in pharmaceutical applications.

* learning how to use various tools to effectively select and test materials.

* becoming familiar with practical approaches to meet regulatory and industry expectations.

Introduction to Rubber Technology for Non-Technologists SEM-008

Wednesday, October 9, 2013 * 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

If you are new to the industry, working in engineering, sales, administration, human resources or any other non-technical area, and you'd like a very basic, easy to understand introduction to the jargon of the trade and what goes on in the factory and lab, then this one-day course is perfect for you. You won't come out a rubber expert, but you will understand all the basics of the technology and the language of the business.

The course material will cover:

* what polymers are, how rubber is different from plastic.

* how recipes for rubber compounds are created and why.

* what's involved in mixing, processing and vulcanizing rubber.
