The 2-day event on REACH and CLP brought together REACH responsible persons from industrial companies, REACH experts, and representatives from national authorities. Reviews showed the development and the lessons learnt within the first registration period.
Although more or less all of the obligated companies had successfully passed the first registration period and met the deadlines for CLP notification and the new safety data sheets, there is no time for relaxing at all in sight.
The forum discussed several general topics like e.g. changes and improvements in REACH-IT and IUCLID and shared experiences from the first registration period, gathered in different industry branches with different rules (registrant, importer, distributor, downstream user) and presented their specific challenges in complying with REACH.
Specific topics like e.g. the handling of polymers or neighboring legislation offered some insight into the wide range of REACH- or other chemistry-related issues.
The Chemicals Forum Europe seems to be the right platform for sharing experiences with the handling of the REACH and CLP regulations. It shows variety, depth, and challenges companies have to face, and helps finding solutions for compliance.
