If you are in the business of manufacturing, formulating, or exporting chemicals to the European Union, you need to know about REACH. The EU REACH regulation (stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is complex and constantly evolving. It is designed to enhance the protection of human health and the environment from the risks posed by chemicals and triggers several obligations before chemicals can be legally placed on the EU market. Furthermore, ongoing evaluation and regulatory risk management of substances by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and Members State Competent Authorities (MSCAs) means that once a substance is registered, there is a continuous stream of additional business risks for companies that they need to be prepared for and ready to manage.
This webinar is intended to give an overview of the regulation, focusing on key roles, responsibilities and options for companies to get and maintain access to the EU market. In addition, we will discuss some of the latest developments around evaluation, authorisation, enforcement and broader industry trends (e.g. sustainability), and have a look at what is on the horizon. Whether you consider yourself to be on top of REACH, or completely new to the regulation, our aim is for there to be something for you in this webinar.
The webinar will be presented by Chris Hughes, principal regulatory consultant for the National Chemical Emergency Centre (NCEC), our partners in the UK. Chris has several years’ experience working for a major multinational chemical company on the implementation of REACH, as both a regulatory professional and as an environmental scientist. He has developed a detailed knowledge of the regulation, supporting a diverse range of chemicals and industry associations, and is experienced in engaging in regulatory evaluation discussions. Chris currently works as an external science adviser to the European Petroleum Refiners Association (Concawe Division) and as part of this is engaged in the activities of the ECHA PetCo Working Group, part of the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) Roadmap to 2020.
This will be followed by a live question and answer session for which you are also welcome to submit questions in advance.
