Blockchain in Supply Chain: Requirements on Suppliers and Subs, Force Majeure, Termination, Service Level Agreements
Addressing Privacy Concerns With GPDR and CCPA
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will discuss the rise of blockchain in the supply chain as new state and federal laws establish that contract validity cannot be denied due to "smart contract" terms. The panel will address how blockchain may replace the traditional bill of lading, how the blockchain can streamline indexing and price adjustments, and what blockchain agreements should include when drafting force majeure and termination provisions. The panel will discuss best practices to handle data privacy concerns and compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (CCPA) and the EU's General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The panel will address these and other key issues:

- How can force majeure and termination provisions address blockchain concerns?
- How can privacy restrictions in the CCPA and GDPR be reconciled with the use of blockchain?
