About Extractables and Leachables China

Extractables and Leachables China is the first conference of its kind. Following on from the hugely successful E&L Europe and USA conferences, Smithers launched a brand new event focusing on extractables and leachables in China. The first event took place in September 2018 in Beijing and the second event took place in September 2019 in Shanghai.

E&L China brings together local stakeholders and experts for 2 days of training and presentations on the Chinese regulatory landscape, E&L testing methods, advances in science and more.

How attending this conference will benefit you

Extractables and leachables examination is growing in importance in China, so understanding future regulations, testing methods, guidelines and best practices for carrying out E&L studies is extremely important to eliminate risk and ensure consumer safety.

Smithers has been organising the European and North American editions of this conference series for over 10 years, and has a long history of providing E&L testing so you can be sure that this conference will provide you with the most up-to-date and relevant information, as well as a productive and valuable conference experience.
