The webinar, being held on Thursday, June 13, at 10:30 a.m. Central, is available to FGIA members and will provide details on the related Section 46 Notice and the mandatory information gathering that obligates companies on the quantities and types of plastic they place in the Canadian market. Register now for “An Introduction to Canada’s Federal Plastics Registry,” led by George Kendros, Unit Head in the Plastics Regulatory Affairs Division at Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC). This session will be moderated by Amy Roberts, FGIA Director of Canadian and Technical Glass Operations.

“This is an important topic that impacts FGIA members selling products in the Canadian market,” said Roberts. “Join this session to get the knowledge you need to bring back to your company about what is happening with plastics regulations in Canada and how these new reporting requirements could impact your business.”

The webinar will focus on those reporting requirements that may be relevant to FGIA and its members. Participants will gain both a deeper understanding of the Federal Plastics Registry and its objectives, as well as knowledge of the reporting requirements and timelines for reporting as they relate to the fenestration and glazing industry. Participants are invited to send specific questions in advance to Amy Roberts.
