SciVera to present at the New York Toy Fair on “Chemical Safety Assessment”

Joe Rinkevich, SciVera’s Founder, will be leading an interactive presentation on Monday, February 11, 2013 at the Javits Center in New York City. Joe’s session will explore the specific steps companies can take to meet the requirements for increased chemical knowledge in toys and juvenile products.

“Chemical Safety Assessment ” refers to the process of product chemical data collection and evaluation that has become a key part of verifying a product’s safety prior to being placed on the market. SciVera’s web-based software product, SciVera Lens, helps product manufacturers gather and evaluate the data needed to verify the chemical safety of products and their materials.

New and pending regulations in Europe and the United States require greater knowledge of a product’s chemical ingredients. The revised European Toy Safety Directive (2009/48/EC) along with new and forthcoming state-level rules in the US are transforming how toy companies must gather and evaluate information from their suppliers and contract manufacturers.

This presentation will also explore how companies are using proactive chemical safety assessment to innovate and select preferred materials for future products.
