ECHA's Eighth Stakeholders' Day – specific support and guidance for SMEs and member registrants

Helsinki, 04 February 2013 - The Eighth Stakeholders' Day conference takes place in Helsinki on 26 March. It focuses specifically on SMEs, in particular member registrants, who are preparing for the 2013 REACH registration deadline. Guest speakers will present chemical safety assessment and Chesar for member registrants; practical tips for substance evaluation; how industry can cooperate in making an application for authorisation as well as a view from NGOs on their role in applications for authorisation.

In addition to being able to book one-to-one discussion slots with ECHA staff about REACH & CLP related topics, as a new feature, participants will also be able to bring their laptop to receive hands-on advice regarding their registration. Further information and booking slots for this service are available when registering for the event.

The Stakeholders' Day is open to all but it is particularly relevant for those involved in REACH and CLP, industry associations, companies, public bodies, NGOs, third country representatives and the media. In this eighth event, special focus will be given to downstream users and 2013 registrants.

The deadline for registering is Tuesday 5 March. Participation is free of charge.
