Registration

A total of 300 places are available to the workshop for lead registrants who have informed ECHA of their role using the Lead Registrant notification web-form. Invitations and a link for registering to the workshop will be sent by ECHA, to all lead registrants who have notified ECHA of their role.

Selection of participants will be on a "first-come first-serve" basis. However priority will be given to lead registrants with no previous experience in SIEF formation.

As an additional incentive for SME lead registrants facing the challenges of leading a SIEF, the Agency is offering to reimburse the travel and accommodation costs of SMEs wishing to attend the Lead Registrant Workshop, subject to the availability of places and an eligibility check.

One-to-one sessions

As an additional incentive for lead registrants, participants will be able to attend one-to-one sessions with ECHA staff who will provide support for specific topics.

Training

ECHA provided lead registrants with training on IT-tools (REACH-IT and IUCLID). The training was divided into two modules: advanced and basic use of the tools.
