Product Stewardship Accreditation Webinar

To help accelerate the adoption of product stewardship in Australia, the Product Stewardship Centre of Excellence will be hosting a webinar on Wednesday 16th June at 11:00am (AEST) that will focus on the topic of voluntary accreditation.

The event will seek to address many of the common queries and misunderstandings associated with who should apply and explain the application process.

In partnership with representatives from the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, the webinar will explain the benefits of government accreditation of business-led product stewardship actions, and clarify some of the more common misconceptions concerning eligibility while also providing guidance around the application and assessment process.

The webinar will also feature two guest speakers from existing accredited schemes. Spyro Kalos, Head of MobileMuster and Lina Goodman, CEO of Tyre Stewardship Australia, will share their experience with the process, the benefits and key issues to consider in applying for accreditation.

The future of design protection in Australia

Redesigning Designs Forum – Melbourne Design Week 2021

While Australian designers contribute more than $67 billion to the economy each year, design protection is not widely understood or used. The Australian Government is exploring what role intellectual property (IP), especially registered design rights, can and should play to best support the Australian design community.

In this online event, IP Australia will present and discuss findings from their review of the design economy and provide an update on the next steps. This event is for anyone with a stake or interest in the Australian design economy and the role of IP protection in business development and growth.

This event is part of Melbourne Design Week 2021, an initiative of the Victorian Government in collaboration with the NGV.
