Dr Nabar summarised that product safety related issues are gaining more and more importance. Using safety data for plant versus operation can be designed in a safe way. Personnel from R&D, quality control, production, technology and marketing are required to be well aware of these issues because the trend now is at the designing stage itself create a product, which is safe and not use substances which are potentially toxic or hazardous. Toxicological and ecotoxicological information available to the consumers are public should be made use of. In the case of new and modified products, R&D has to consider issues such as registration status, physical and chemical hazards. For domestic and overseas business, supplier has to be well aware of the registration status, different regulations, legislation and application in various countries. If one exports the material and the authorities find that it is not conforming to the regulations in their country and if they reject, sometimes we may even have to pay demurrage as long as it is on their soil. A lapse can have a serious impact on the business, he cautioned.
