The work of the second section was no less lively. The section was opened by Robert Pochyluk (Vice-President of the Association Polish Forum ISO 14000, Poland) with a report on chemical risk management in the framework of ISO 14001. Further representatives of Russian organizations Galina Ivanova (Deputy Director of the FBU Test St. Petersburg), Elizaveta Novozhilova and Irina Yakovleva (Certification Association Russian Register) spoke in detail about the application of best management practices, certification of environmental management systems, as well as the integration of chemical risk management into the environmental management system.
