REACH Workshop: The Plastics Industry State of Play with practical examples

Last days to register before next week's workshop!

On 17 and 18 March, the European Plastics Converters (EuPC) trade association - which has been actively involved in the development of REACH - is holding the REACH Workshop: The Plastics Industry State of play with practical examples. The implementation of REACH has thus far covered the registrations of big and medium volumes chemicals, the first authorisations and restrictions, but there are new challenges ahead to be faced, such as the 2018 registration.

The focus of the first day will be on different sections pertaining to REACH while the second day of the workshop will be dedicated to Risk Management options for substances and Enforcement.

Geoffroy Tillieux, EuPC Technical Department Director & PCE Regulatory Compliance Director will present the rights and obligations for the plastics supply chain. Dr Bernhard Mahlberg from the Institute for Industrial Research will evaluate the impact of REACH on the affected industries and Austria’s economy, a report commissioned by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management.

Various aspects of REACH registrations will be covered by industry experts such as Roger Van Der Linden, PlasticsEurope REACH Committee Chairman, who will discuss the notifications of nanomaterials. The registration in 2018 and orphan substances will be presented by Karin Van de Velde, Secretary General of the REACH Orphan Substance Consortium. Venelin Marinov, Advisor to the Bulgarian Association Polymers, will explain the duties of importers and only representatives.
