What is REACH?
REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals. REACH is a legislative regulation required to produce and sell products in the European Union (EU). The main objectives of REACH are to protect human and environmental health by understanding and managing the risks of chemicals.
Following the upcoming 2018 Registration deadline, the focus of REACH compliance will shift from the Registration of any chemical manufactured or imported at greater than 1 Mt, to requirements related to hazardous chemicals in the supply chain. Companies who manufacture and/or supply products that are imported into the EU need to understand the upcoming registration deadline as well as supply chain considerations related to substances on the Candidate, Authorization, and Restriction lists. These evolving requirements can have an impact on supply chain, and in some cases, will restrict the import or use of products that incorporate hazardous chemicals in the EU.
What will the webinar cover?
- A basic overview of REACH
- Actors and their obligations in the supply chain under REACH
- An overview of the process for the management of hazardous chemicals under REACH
- Business implications of substances found on the Candidate, Authorization and Restriction lists
- How to identify chemicals early in the management process, so that you can be prepared and minimize supply chain impact.

What is Chemical Management?
Chemical management is a systematic approach to managing the use of chemicals, hazardous or otherwise, in a business’ supply chain and/or product(s). Chemical management has historically been shaped by regulatory requirements, but increasingly, consumer awareness and NGO’s are driving the need for more comprehensive strategies to reduce risk and protect the bottom line.
The most effective approach to managing chemicals can vary based on the business industry sector, business size, and type of products. One size does not fit all. The most important aspect of a chemical management program is to take a proactive approach in developing a strategy unique to your products and supply chain and communicate the information effectively.
What will the webinar cover?
- The basic overview of chemical management
- Drivers for chemical management beyond compliance requirements
- Why a chemical management strategy makes good business sense
- Key policy components which are important across all industry sectors
- Strategies to effectively reduce and / or remove chemicals from products or the supply chain
