About ETA

The Enzyme Technical Association (ETA) is a trade association that represents a majority of the manufacturers and marketers of enzyme products in North, Central, and South America (“Americas”). The ETA has been in existence since 1970 and maintains an active role in the development of governmental regulations, policies and industry guidance that affect enzyme manufacturers, distributors, and customers.  ETA activities and meetings are occasions when members, representatives and guests:

  1. Discuss scientific, regulatory and legal solutions to common problems affecting enzyme industrial activities.
  2. Support and promote scientific programs to enhance public and employee health and safety associated with enzyme handling.
  3. Support and promote educational programs to enhance awareness of enzyme technology and advancements.
  4. Collaborate with global stakeholders in the enzyme industry including: trade associations, governmental agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and customers/end-use consumers.
