Practical training for all your REACH and CLP needs
We run an ongoing programme of training events designed to help you tackle every aspect of REACH and CLP, from the Basics to many of the technical issues you will need to deal with to ensure ongoing compliance. The majority of our courses are also CPD accredited to support your professional development.
Choosing the right training course for your needs can seem like a complicated business - so we've put together some helpful information to point you in the right direction, for further information see our guide to REACH and CLP training.

11 March - Maintaining your REACH Registrations: Dossier Quality, Evaluation and CoRAP, The Hallmark Hotel, Midland Road, Derby, DE1 2SQ
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.
Perhaps you have received a Quality Observation Letter (QObL) from ECHA, or new use information from your customers. Maybe your registration dossier contained testing proposals for Annex IX or X information. Or perhaps your substance is one of the 125 on the draft CoRAP for evaluation in 2014-2016. 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.
This day is designed to help you understand what action you need to take to maintain your REACH dossier and ensure that you can achieve any requests ECHA makes of you.
2 April - Supplying Goods into the EU, Managing your SVHC Obligations, Oxford Spires Four Pillars Hotel, Abingdon Road, Oxford, OX1 4PS
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.
NEW 9 April - An Introduction to Site-Based Chemical Regulations, CIA, Kings Buildings, Smith Square London SW1P 3JJ
Run in partnership with the Chemical Industries Association (CIA) this one-day workshop is designed to provide an introduction for site-based personnel to the key regulations which define the obligations for health, safety and the environment within UK chemical and chemical using or storing sites.
In the morning we will look at the operational health, safety and environmental issues covered by COSHH, COMAH and EPR as well as the legislation covering water and waste.
In the afternoon we will provide an overview of the REACH regulation – the regulation concerning the manufacture and import of chemicals within the EU. We will then consider the role and use of Safety Data Sheets to communicate hazard information and finally the requirements of the CLP regulation and the implications that can have for a chemical site.
As well as using REACHReady’s experts to provide the introduction to REACH, SDS and CLP our colleagues from the CIA will share their expertise of the other key pieces of regulation.
This workshop is an excellent place to start for anyone who needs to understand more about their site compliance obligations under these regulations. This day would be ideal for those new to the chemical industry, Site Safety Representatives, or personnel who want a better understanding of the laws affecting the chemical industry at site level.
10 April - Dealing with Extended–SDS for Formulators, Manchester Conference Centre, Sackville Street, Manchester M1 3BB
Run in partnership with BACS (the British Association for Chemical Specialities) this one day workshop is designed for those who already know about REACH and SDS obligations, but need to understand the significance of information in the extended SDS and how to communicate onwards when using these substances to make formulated mixtures.
The format of the day is designed to provide sufficient understanding of the information found in the extended SDS to enable interpretation and to understand the significance of numbers and exposure levels. However, much of the time will be spent going through examples of exposure scenarios provided by those attending and also looking at guidance and sources of help. The day will be highly interactive and there will be a chance to mix with others from the same industrial sector to discuss best practice.
Bookings should be made directly with BACS. Further information and booking form.
1 May - 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.
13 May - 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.
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.
