1 May 2014 - The “A” of REACH: An Introduction to Authorisation, Aldersgate House, 135-137 Aldersgate Street, London, EC1A 4JA
There are currently 22 substances listed within Annex XIV of REACH as being subject to Authorisation, the “A” of “REACH”, in the near future. Those companies who manufacture, import or use one of these 22 substances, or perhaps one of the Candidate List substances that may join the Authorisation List, now need to gain a better understanding of the implications of this List, the practicalities of making an application and the resulting communication activities.
Any company wanting to find out more about the Authorisation process and how it works in practice should attend this event. In particular, this day is aimed at anyone in the chemical manufacturing, and importing sectors who needs a greater understanding of the Authorisation process. The day will also be of interest to anyone who has identified that their supply chain uses a substance that may become subject to Authorisation and needs to consider the consequent business continuity issues.
Please contact us for further information.
13 May 2014 - Hazard Communication for Small Businesses, The Chemistry Centre, Royal Society of Chemistry, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0BA
Run in partnership with the Royal Society of Chemistry, this one-day workshop is designed specifically for small businesses importing, formulating and supplying mixtures and will discuss the challenges faced in dealing with their CLP and SDS obligations.
The programme will provide an overview of the key aspects of CLP, practical concerns including notification to the C&L Inventory and how to prepare labels, through to implementation of GHS in key territories around the world. In the afternoon we will consider the SDS requirements in more detail and look at how to prepare – and use – Exposure Scenarios.
The workshop will help you:
- Improve your understanding of CLP and SDS
- Define your company’s role and its duties for hazard communication and notification
- Appreciate how GHS is implemented in other regions
- Understand the essentials of a compliant SDS
- Know how to prioritise your actions and make a robust compliance plan.
You’ll get the most from the day if you know something of the current CHIP Regulations and how they affect your business. However, if you are new to the role, or haven’t started on your compliance programme yet, you will still really benefit.
22 May 2014 - An Introduction the the Biocidal Products Regulation, Macdonald Manchester Hotel, London Road, Piccadilly, Manchester M1 2PG
This workshop is aimed at business managers and regulatory specialists working in companies that formulate or import biocidal products such as disinfectants, preservatives and insecticides. The event will also be of interest to anyone who wishes to know more about applying for product authorisations under the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR).
Whether you are familiar with the previous Biocidal Products Directive (BPD) or not, this workshop will help you ensure that both you and your supply chain are able to comply with the measures introduced by the Biocidal Products Regulation. The comprehensive programme provides an introduction to the key elements of the Regulation whilst focussing on its implications for formulators and importers.
We are also pleased to announce that the event will feature a speaker from the UK Competent Authority, the HSE, who will provide practical guidance on the product authorisation process in the UK as well as potential enforcement actions.
There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and find out more about the implications for your business throughout the day.
11 June 2014 - Managing REACH for Suppliers of Articles:
How compliant are you? The Hallmark Hotel, Midland Road, Derby, DE1 2SQ
This one-day workshop is aimed at business managers and regulatory specialists in companies that supply articles within the EU. It is of particular relevance to companies working through the complex and often confusing requirements in the REACH Regulation for finished goods, sub-assemblies and components. It will also be of interest to suppliers of articles which may be treated with biocidal products prior to import.
We assume that attendees have an understanding of the definition of an article and an appreciation of the REACH duties of suppliers.
As the list of chemicals of concern grows:
- how do you check that your company is on track?
- what does your REACH compliance statement mean?
- do you have sufficient information to support your Article 33 declarations?
We will distinguish between regulatory requirements and customer requests, and outline key measures that you should be taking in your business – as well as important assurance checks to make of suppliers. We will also outline the new requirements in the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) for articles which have been treated with, or incorporate, biocidal products prior to import.
