This live one-hour webinar is free for members. It will explore the background to the 2017 Mercury Regulations and discuss their implementation with particular emphasis on risk management in dental practice.

Mercury is a universally present environmental pollutant and the 2013 Minamata Convention requires dentistry to play its part in reducing the global burden.  As a result of the introduction of the Mercury Regulations, dental practice in the EU and UK is required to phase down its use of dental amalgam and to ensure that effective waste management practices are in place.

Earn 1 hour of CPD. 

Attendees who have taken part in the webinar will have an appreciation of:

  • the factors driving the phase down of dental amalgam
  • issues covered by the Mercury Regulations and how they apply in dental practice
  • considerations for managing the implementation of the Mercury Regulations.

This webinar meets the criteria for the GDC development outcomes A, B and D
