European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) and the European Commission (Directorates-General Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs as well as Environment) will organise a workshop on Socio-economic analysis in applications for authorisation and restriction under REACH on 29 June 2016.
This event aims to clarify the role of socio-economic analysis (SEA) under REACH. Key topics to discuss are:
- what SEA does and what it does not do
- why SEA is needed
- what is possible and meaningful to carry out as part of SEA,
- how the opinions of SEAC are derived in practice,
- how SEA is used in decision making and
- how best to communicate SEA related issues and conclusions to stakeholders.
The workshop material will be made public on ECHA's and Commission's websites.
