OWTC - REACH: The Challenge Continues

In cooperation with Feierl-Herzele GmbH we offer this OWTC (One Week Training Class) which focuses on EU’s REACH regulation. It offers the participants a comprehensive overview of the regulatory mechanisms for chemicals in the European Union after the major registration deadlines have expired in 2018. Delegates will gain knowhow, which will help them to tackle existing and upcoming challenges when being active on the European market or when planning to enter the European market with a new business.

The main objective of this class is to give the delegates the most practical and up-to-date overview of the regulatory environment that is relevant for chemicals. An important focus of the curriculum is REACH and all its elements like registration, evaluation, authorization, communication and ECHA’s role. However, there will also be sufficient time to explore interactions with other relevant legislation like for example the biocidal product or CLP regulations. Furthermore, there will be a strong focus on the understanding of the relevant IT-tools IUCLID and REACH-IT.
