On October 14, 2020, the European Commission adopted the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability. The Strategy set into motion a series of remarkable actions by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) intended to transform the European Union (EU) into a sustainable and carbon neutral economy while improving protection of its people and the environment. The Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) and the Classification, Labeling and Packaging (CLP) regulations are the cornerstones for regulating chemicals in the EU. The Strategy necessarily involves modifications to REACH and CLP to effectuate the Strategy’s goals. This webinar will explore exactly how the Strategy is fundamentally reshaping the REACH and CLP regulations in ways that are resetting the global stage in terms of identifying new hazard classes and New Approach Methodologies (NAM) for identifying them. We will focus on the practical implications of a large number of secondary legislations in the EU that will undoubtedly change forever core concepts of chemical hazard, risk assessment, and risk management.

REACH and CLP experts from the Brussels-based consultancies of EPPA and ToxMinds and from The Acta Group (Acta®), with offices in Brussels, the U.K., and Washington, D.C., will discuss the regulatory, scientific, and policy changes that are influencing chemical management in the EU and beyond.

Who Should Attend?
Chemical product stewards, regulatory specialists focusing on industrial chemical management, toxicologists, lawyers, regulatory chemists, hazard communication specialists, government affairs specialists, trade specialists, and all others responsible for managing and advising on issues pertinent to chemical management are invited to attend.
