REACH Regulation – The Impact on Equipment Manufacturers and Downstream Chemical Users

10th May 2012, ERA Technology, Leatherhead, UK

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is a highly complex piece of legislation which has had a major impact on all industries.

Producers, distributors, suppliers and importers of electrical and electronic equipment need to be aware of their legal obligations and of the commercial and technical risks that are now arising as a result of REACH. This practical course will inform you about the latest requirements of REACH, their implications for your business and how to respond in ways that will avoid costly disruption to business continuity and the supply chain.

The course will explain:

What REACH is and what legal obligations fall on those making or supplying products ('articles') and users of chemicals – particularly those in the electrical or engineering sectors.

Changes to safety data sheets and processes – avoiding disruption to manufacturing.

Ensuring continuity of supply.

Supply chain information requirements and effective communication.

Substances of very high concern - what are they, where are they used in electrical equipment and how to comply with legal obligations.

Authorisation and future restrictions on use of substances.

Hazardous chemicals used in processes and that are present in electrical equipment - action planning to avoid disruption from early obsolescence and future restrictions.
