8 October 2014 - Supplying Goods into the EU, Managing your SVHC Obligations, Grand Connaught Rooms, 61-63 Great Queen St, London WC2B 5DA
This event is aimed at importers, manufacturers, and retailers of articles, whether as finished products or for further assembly within the EU, who need to gain a better understanding of their obligations under REACH and how to comply.
Under the REACH Regulation an “article” means pretty much anything that isn’t a chemical: clothing, furniture, motor vehicle parts etc. Every product is made from substances, and substances in articles need to be “registered” if they are intended to be released. We will start with the basics - "how do you define an article".
During the day we will also explain the importance of the Candidate List and what obligations this may place on you to communicate with your customers as well as the possible requirement to notify the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) - with practical tips on how to do this.
Finally we will wrap up the day by considering some of the practicalities of managing this information within your business.
REACHReady is running this one-day workshop to help companies with the practical implementation of the REACH Regulation. The comprehensive programme provides an introduction to the key elements of REACH and includes talks covering the implications for manufacturers, importers and users of chemicals throughout the supply chain.
This workshop is an excellent place to start for anyone who needs to understand more about their compliance obligations under this regulation. It is also ideal if you are new to dealing with REACH within your company.
There is plenty of opportunity to ask questions as we go and find out more about the implications for your business.
4 November 2014 - CLP and Safety Data Sheets for Formulators - The Link Hotel, Loughborough, LE11 4EX
This one-day practical, interactive workshop is designed specifically for small and large businesses involved in the formulation supply chain, be that as importers, suppliers, or formulators. It will be of particular interest to Managers responsible for health, safety, environmental and regulatory compliance, to Formulators in R&D roles, and those in sales and marketing roles receiving customer SDS & labelling queries.
This practical workshop will help you:
- Improve your understanding of CLP and SDS
- Define your company’s role and its duties for hazard communication and notification
- Understand the essentials of a compliant SDS
- Know how to prioritise your actions and make a robust compliance plan to meet the 2015 deadline.
Whether you import, produce or supply formulations, from small scale to high volume use, come along to learn more about how the change from CHIP to CLP affects your business and how to embark on a cost-effective plan for compliant hazard communication.
11 November 2014 - Treated Articles and the Biocidal Products Regulation, Hotel La Tour, Albert St, Birmingham, B5 5JE
This workshop is aimed at business managers and regulatory specialists working in companies that import or supply articles – non-chemical finished goods and components – within the EU. It will also be of interest to importers and suppliers of substances and mixtures treated with biocidal products such as in-can preservatives.
The EU Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) entered into force on 1 September 2013. It introduced new measures which are having a significant impact on producers and importers of any products (substances, mixtures or articles) which may be treated with a biocidal product prior to supply – for example, to prevent microbial deterioration.
Understanding and complying with these requirements can be particularly challenging for those who import such “treated articles”; especially as it is not necessarily straightforward to obtain the details of a treatment which has taken place outside the EU. This workshop will consider supply chain management strategies to help you meet your obligations.
18 & 19 November 2014 - International Chemical Control Law, Holiday Inn Chicago O'Hare Area, Chicago
Our US training event for 2014 will be delivered over 18 & 19 November in Chicago and topics covered include International Chemical Control (including Korea and China) the EU REACH Regulation, GHS, US hazard communication, EU CLP, and EU Safety Data Sheets and labelling. You can pick and mix the days you attend - either an individual day or both days.
This modular event is essential for North American chemical users, regulatory managers and practitioners who need to understand new product compliance requirements with a focus on:
- International Chemical Control - with the main focus on the EU but also including China and Korea
- GHS implications for US companies including the EU CLP and SDS and labelling changes.
These workshops are for companies that manufacture and export substances within or between the EU and the USA and for those who may have a need to understand broader International Chemical Control Law issues. It is for those who want to know the key steps to follow to successfully manage their EU and US market and meet these critical obligations. Delivered jointly by H2 Compliance and The Redstone Group, our experts will help you understand and identify the key actions you need to take.
With our flexible options you can book either day individually or the two days together. There are discounts for early (before 17 October) and multi-day bookings.
27 November - Managing REACH for manufacturers and importers: How compliant are you? Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport, Manchester M90 3RA
This CPD accredited day is aimed at business managers working in the chemical manufacturing and importing sectors and will outline the key compliance measures that you should be taking in your own business – and important assurance checks to make of your suppliers.
REACH enforcement actions and inspections have already started and robust, audited compliance documentation is a valuable way of demonstrating that your company is complying with both the legalities and spirit of REACH. This workshop will outline the essentials of a REACH compliance strategy which considers not just your own activities but those up and down the supply chain. Sessions during the day include:
- Summary of obligations for manufacturers and importers
- Managing business impacts
- Supply chain issues – non-EU suppliers and EU suppliers of raw materials
- Conducting a supplier audit
- Implications of getting it wrong
Attendees may also find our December workshop looking at the more practical aspects of maintaining REACH Registration dossiers complements this day.
3 December 2014 - REACH and Small Businesses, The Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BA
Delivered in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry this one-day workshop has been specifically tailored for small companies in the chemical and downstream industries. It will be of particular interest to managers responsible for health, safety, environmental and REACH compliance, to formulators in R&D roles, and those in sales and purchasing roles dealing with REACH.
During this one-day workshop we will discuss how REACH affects small businesses and how to deal with the challenges it presents. The programme will provide an overview of the key aspects of REACH, from substance registration, the rights and responsibilities of downstream users, through to the management of chemicals of concern such as SVHCs.
10 December 2014 - Maintaining your REACH Registrations: Dossier Quality, Evaluation and CoRAP, Grand Connaught Rooms, 61 - 63 Great Queen St, London WC2B 5DA
This workshop is aimed at regulatory managers working in the chemical manufacturing and importing sectors. It will be of particular interest to those who submitted dossiers for the 2010 and 2013 registration deadlines.
Every manufacturer, importer and Only Representative has REACH duties beyond the initial submission of a registration dossier. Maintaining your registration is an essential part of compliance, particularly as new information emerges about your substance or its uses. In addition, if your substance is on the Community Rolling Action Plan (CoRAP) for evaluation, has been selected for dossier evaluation, or contained testing proposals it is imperative that you understand how to manage the implications.
This workshop will help you:
- appreciate how to ensure your dossier is robust
- manage newly identified information or customer uses
- recognise how CoRAP and evaluation may affect you
- understand how to make updates and stay up-to-date.
We have an informal style so there will be plenty of opportunity to quiz our experts throughout the day.
We can offer all of our training courses specifically designed for small groups of delegates, delivered at your place or ours. We have put together a package of suggested programmes, all of which can be tailored to your own requirements. Ideal numbers will be 6 or more participants - but if you would like to participate in one of these courses as an individual or with smaller group just let us know and we will try to 'matchmake' to find similar people to make up the required number.
