REACH is coming and it

Rapra Technology Limited : 02 January, 2007  (Technical Article)
REACH is coming and it
While the chemicals industry supports the goals of REACH, its implementation will be all-consuming and, in some cases, prohibitively costly. Whether you’re an importer, distributor, formulator or downstream user, you need to know what you’re up against, as they say “better the devil you know”.

Will we have the resources to handle REACH?
How will REACH impact the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry?
Can we solve the disproportionate burden on SMEs?
Will REACH prove a barrier to innovation?
What testing is required and how can test data be pooled and shared?
What is the impact on intellectual property?
We are currently recruiting speakers. If REACH is your area of expertise, please consider submitting a paper for presentation at this new international conference.

Papers are invited on:

Overviews on what the legislation covers and what it means in practice for industry
How REACH will operate
REACH – practical papers on testing requirements and feasibility
Impact of REACH on polymers and products using them
Effect of REACH on the supply of chemicals in the EU
Cost of implementing REACH in the industry
Data sharing and data sources
Market surveys of the effect of the legislation on material and chemical supplies
Country-specific issues relating to the legislation
Case studies highlighting specific approaches being taken to prepare for REACH
Materials substitution issues and opportunities
Green approaches to chemical use in the EU
The likely impact on the European Chemical Industry
Management and administrative systems for dealing with REACH
