Strong Demand for advice on REACH to be met at Conference

Smithers Rapra Technology, a subsidiary of the US-based independent testing, consulting and contract research organisation, The Smithers Group, has added Antwerp to the list of destinations for their growing series of REACH conferences. The third conference in September 2008 has been timed to take place 15 months after the adoption of the controversial REACH policy and to coincide with the pre-registration phase of the legislation. The programme is being specifically developed to inform all those impacted by REACH of the current status of the legislation and the developing requirements to enable REACH compliance in the most cost effective and efficient manner possible. Rapra is currently inviting speakers for this high profile event, offering companies the opportunity to demonstrate to their customers and suppliers that they are proactive, responsible players in the market and the actions they have taken to ensure compliance. All abstracts should be submitted to Alix Yates, Conferences Business Manager by the deadline of 4th February 2008. Over 200 concerned chemical manufacturers, material formulators and end users of chemical products attended Rapra's first REACH conference held in Brussels in April 2007. Following the success of the first meeting, Smithers Rapra has scheduled two further conferences in Boston, USA and Antwerp during 2008. REACH, (Regulation, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) is one of the most important pieces of Producer Responsibility legislation to impact the European chemical industry and its supply chains. The legislation not only has major ramifications for chemical manufacturers, it also affects materials formulators and even end users of chemical products. REACH is changing the way many chemical products are manufactured and used and the legislation is likely to mean that some critical specialty materials will no longer be available. Complying with the requirements of REACH will be a costly and time-consuming exercise.
