2020 Webinar Schedule
April 10 | ACA Webinar: Business Interruptions and Coronavirus – Force Majeure and Other Contract and Insurance Considerations
Presenters: Barbara Muller, Member, Business/Corporate at Cozen O’Connor
Michael D. Rafalko, Member, Insurance at Cozen O’Connor
This webinar will address the business impact disruptions due to the novel coronavirus from a contractual perspective. Whether a supplier who cannot meet contractual deadlines because the supply chain collapsed as a result of COVID-19 or a buyer who wants to get out of its payment obligations by claiming “force majeure” – it is likely that your business has been affected by governmental and/or private reactions to the threat posed by the pandemic. This webinar will address these scenarios.
April 23 | ACA Webinar: Safer Products for Washington
Presenter: Craig Manahan, Safer Products Chemist at Washington DOE
This webinar will provide an overview of the Safer Products for Washington program. Chapter 70.365 Revised Code of Washington creates a process for the state Department of Ecology (DOE), in consultation with the state Department of Health, to regulate classes of chemicals in consumer products. The law requires DOE to designate priority chemical classes, identify products that contain these chemicals, determine regulatory actions, and adopt rules to implement regulatory actions.
The webinar will address the Washington identified products, focusing on Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in printing inks and Phenolics in food cans, which DOE is considering for further evaluation and potential regulation.
