Our Managing Director, Mr. Hans-Jochen Lückefett has opened the session at Chemspec 2012 in Barcelona. He presented: “Tricks and Traps when working in SIEFs”.
He started with explaining the meaning of the SIEF (the substance information exchange forum) and how it works.
Then he pointed out that the concept of the SIEF is based on conflicting principles:
• Mandatory membership versus voluntary roles such as the SIEF
• Cooperation and sharing of data versus full application of the
….EU competition law
• Sharing of data versus protection of confidential company data.
Based on the description of typical situations he explained how to avoid the typical mistakes and how to escape from traps while complying with the REACH regulation.
