REACH Conference 2018, September 3-4

REACH Conference 2018

is organized for the eleventh time combining lecturers and participants from different sectors of industry, authorities, academia and other stakeholders. Now we are in the full speed of REACH legislation (10 years on) reaching the important milestone to complete
reagistration of substances above 1 tonne per year.

REACH registration 2018 deadline is a challenge especially for SMEs. Subsequent duties for downstream users in the supply chain are under implementation. Exposure scenarios and e-SDSs are more and more frequent and creating new tasks for all of involved. Also authorisation process is on the place—the Candidate list now containing a total of 181 entries and the Authorisation list contains 43 unique substances/entries. Further restrictions are applied by revision of Annex XVII.
Overlaps with other legislative sectors is under evluation, but very important is the REACH and CLP REFIT evaluation (REACH and CLP Review 2017).

So what are the results and what will be next after REACH 2018?
