Seminar helps companies avoid technical and legal pitfalls of new Homeland Security regulations

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP announced today it will co-host a seminar with ABS Consulting on how to deal with new regulations that will have a significant impact on how all types of companies use and store chemicals.  

"Complying with Homeland Security's New Sweeping Anti-Terrorism Regulations Pertaining to Companies that Use or Store Chemicals; Avoiding Technical & Legal Pitfalls (Great Lakes Session)" will be held at the Rock Financial Showplace in Novi, Mich. on June 20, 2007.

Presented by Honigman and ABS Consulting, and co-sponsored by the Michigan Manufacturers Association, the seminar revolves around the recent regulations by the U. S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that impose comprehensive federal security regulations for facilities that use or store chemicals. Tom DiNanno, former  Deputy Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, DHS, will also be presenting, in addition to a keynote luncheon address by Colonel Michael C. McDaniel, Assistant Adjutant General for Homeland Security in Michigan.

Targeted to plant managers and company general counsel, chemical storage facility personnel, and security managers and personnel, the seminar will discuss what the operational impact of the rule will be, key legal issues and pitfalls to avoid, the "ABCs" of the rule, the chemical sector performance standards, and individual rights and obligations during a DHS inspection.
