REACH 2018 Find your co-registrants and prepare to work together
18 November 2015
11:00 - 12:00

 

Description

This is the second webinar of a series focusing on practical information to successfully register by the deadline of 31 May 2018.

If your company does not have previous experience of registering chemicals under the REACH Regulation, you will find this webinar particularly useful. It gives you an understanding of how to retrieve your pre-registrations in REACH-IT and to check if your substance has been already registered. You can then find useful information on how to find the lead registrant or your co-registrants with whom you will need to work together to register jointly. You can also get tips on how to start the work and prepare for being in a substance information exchange forum (SIEF).

Finally, the webinar includes a Q&A session where we addressed outstanding issues related to the topic.

Why opt for substitution
22 September 2015
11:00 - 12:30

 

Description

Replacing hazardous chemicals with safer alternatives can bring substantial benefits to the company, the environment and the health of workers and consumers – all good reasons to substitute them. An additional driver comes from the chemicals legislation. Companies using substances that have been identified as SVHCs under REACH, have to decide whether to apply for a permission to continue using these toxic substances for a limited period of time or to substitute them with safer alternatives.

ECHA and a group of accredited stakeholder organisations have organised a series of webinars aiming to inspire companies to substitute hazardous chemicals and explain how it can be done. All webinars include examples of real life substitution projects. This was the first webinar in the series.

Introduction to OECD QSAR Toolbox
17 June 2015
11:00 - 14:00 Helsinki time

 

Description

The webinar provides an introduction to the OECD QSAR Toolbox and its functionalities. Two examples cover endpoints which will be relevant for the third REACH registration deadline in 2018 (e.g. skin sensitisation, aquatic toxicity). The Toolbox is the most comprehensive, widely recognised and freely available platform for data gap filling in regulatory hazard assessment, while avoiding tests. It is used for grouping chemicals into categories, identifying and filling (eco-)toxicological data gaps for the hazard assessment of chemicals. The Toolbox is also very useful for screening and prioritising inventories.
