From the Hurriyet Daily News:
As Turkey braces for potential problems in the export of some chemical substances to the European Union, a Helsinki forum will focus on chemicals issues this coming May.
The Helsinki Chemicals Forum, or HCF, will be held on May 20 and 21 next year and will discuss whether REACH, the European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use, can become a global model. The forum will be held partly under the auspices of the European Chemicals Agency, or ECHA, which is based in the city.
[Hannu Vornamo, secretary-general of HCF] said the forum is necessary to enforce REACH legislation across Europe in a unified way because it would be difficult to force national authorities to implement the legislation otherwise.
