Join us for our next E360 Webinar, “Regulations 2018: What’s Set, Pending and Proposed” on Tuesday, January 16 at 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST.
If you’ve followed the regulatory activities impacting our industry over the past several years, you know that staying informed is half the battle. From new regulations introduced by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) to the implementation of the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the global cold chain has its share of regulatory hurdles to overcome.
Since 2014, Emerson has helped the industry not only make sense of these regulations, but also assisted our customers in making the transition to new refrigeration strategies that address our shared regulatory compliance challenges:
- EPA phase-down of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants with high global warming potential (GWP)
- DOE mandate of new energy-efficiency standards
- FSMA food safety reforms
This effort is ongoing, and in many ways, we’re in the early phases of this transition. As we move into 2018, there are 10 significant regulatory targets on the horizon that will impact refrigerants and energy standards over the next four years.
Our next E360 Webinar will bring together a panel of experts to discuss the potential short- and long-term implications of these regulations and present key trends that are shaping our industry:
- Rajan Rajendran, vice president — system innovation center and sustainability, will report on recent regulatory developments in refrigerant and energy standards.
- Amy Childress, vice president — marketing & planning, cargo solutions, will discuss how automated temperature monitoring helps the perishable food industry comply with new FSMA rules.
- I will explain how innovations in IOT, building management and control systems create smart buildings that contribute to the smart grid.
To make sure you’re prepared for the new year and the regulatory challenges to come, join us on Tuesday, January 16 at 2 p.m. EST / 11 a.m. PST for this informative webinar.
