August 27, 2013 /3BL Media/ - Participants at the third annual Focal Point conference will hear from one of the leading US firms practicing packaging law. 

The keynote presentation will be by Jeffrey Keithline, a partner at Keller and Heckman, who practices food and drug law.
Keithline's one-hour presentation will provide an overview of US and EU food-contact requirements, and describe steps to avoid pitfalls with environmental marketing claims, including claims for recycled content, recyclability, compostability and biodegradability. He will also discuss evaluating compliance under state and local requirements, including California Proposition 65 and various toxics in packaging laws. 
Keithline, who has been with Keller and Heckman since 1998, works with companies on compliance issues relating to the manufacture, labeling and disposal of packaging. He will bring his expertise to Focal Point in a presentation titled "Evaluating the Legal Status of Packaging: Untangling a Complex Web of State and Federal Regulations."
Focal Point 2013 targets challenges and opportunities in the packaging and converting industries. In addition to Keithline, the conference features a full slate of experts representing important aspects in the current landscape of the packaging and packaging-materials industry. On the program are Lisa Bauer-Lotto, Green Bay Packaging; Paul Fowler, WIST; Paul Gardner, Recycling Reinvented; Amanda Humes, Conagra Foods; Gopal Iyengar, NewPage Corporation; Chris Reitmeyer, IPS; Jeff Timm, Timm Consulting; and Wayne Wegner, Bemis.
