Learn about EU and UK-REACH

REACH is an ambitious chemical regulation and places a number of different obligations on manufacturers, importers and downstream users. This course will cover the major features of REACH, including Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation, Restriction, Articles and SVHC's, supply chain communication and Safety Data Sheets. This interactive virtual classroom is designed to meet the needs of regulatory and compliance managers tasked with delivering or overseeing the REACH registration requirements of their organisations. The course will provide the knowledge and techniques necessary to fulfil the registration obligations under the REACH Regulation and to manage the potential impact of the Regulation on their business.

Topics covered during this virtual classroom

1. REACH Introduction and Registration Process 

The first module of the course introduces participants to REACH and the registration process. In this module we discuss the main protocols for REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction) and review the key definitions and exemptions from the registration process. This module also includes a detailed overview of the REACH Registration Process.  

2. REACH Data Management, Data Sharing and Ongoing Compliance 

Module 2 covers REACH Data Management, discussing data gap assessments, integrated testing strategies, use of alternative endpoint fulfilment methods and data costs. We also discuss data sharing methods including information on Substance Information Exchange Forums (SIEFs). We also discuss how to ensure compliance with your data management tools and strategy. An overview of UK-REACH will also be provided, and throughout this session, impacts from both a UK and non-UK perspective will be considered.  

3. REACH for Downstream Users 

This module is geared towards those further down the supply chain who use chemicals or produce/import articles, and covers all roles and activities that downstream users may undertake. Topics to be covered in this module include: Roles and responsibilities in the supply chain Determining your obligations Ensuring compliance Business Impact Management 

4. Introduction to IUCLID and Creating an Inquiry and Joint Registration Dossier 

This module covers how to prepare an IUCLID Dossier for an Inquiry and a Joint Registration using IUCLID Cloud. We also review each mandatory section from the chemical composition and analytical information, classification and labelling, PBT assessment, uses, guidance on safe use and CSR. 

5. IUCLID for a Lead Registration and Dossier Submission 

This module covers how to prepare an IUCLID Dossier for a Lead Registration using IUCLID Cloud. 

6. Exposure Scenarios and the Chemical Safety Report 

In this module, we provide an introduction to risk assessment and exposure scenarios. We also cover approaches to writing a Chemical Safety Report (CSR) and discuss obligations through the supply chain.
