REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals. It came into force on 1st June 2007 and replaced a number of European Directives and Regulations with a single system. Chemicals must be registered with the European Chemicals Agency to continue to be used or made in Europe.
The objective of the course is to ensure you are aware of your responsibilities and to help you prepare a plan of action for your workplace. If your materials are not registered or not exempt, you will not be able to import or export your goods in the EU.
The course will give an overview of the possible requirements for a site. It will explore the responsibilities a site may have for its raw materials and products and show how to get started on a REACH review. It will also look at compliance with vendor usage instructions with a focus on powder containment, including very high risk materials.
