REACH for Downstream Users, Distributors and Importers of Articles

The web-seminar takes place in two training units on two consecutive days from 9:00 - 14:00 including a lunch break.


REACH is the European Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals for the European market. Downstream users and distributors of chemicals and articles, however, have different obligations under REACH compared to manufacturers and importers of chemicals.
