COVID-19 update regarding meetings and visitors

Follow this page for latest updates regarding coronavirus and ECHA’s functioning. 
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic. ECHA is closely following authorities’ advice to avoid the spreading of coronavirus and is undertaking the following measures:
  • All meetings, including meetings of formal ECHA bodies, with external participants from abroad will be held remotely, or cancelled, until further notice. Participants of these meetings will be informed directly about the decision.
  • Work-related travel for ECHA staff is cancelled or postponed until further notice.
  • ECHA staff will be teleworking.
Our goal is not to disrupt the Agency’s crucial functions, but non-critical activities might need to be re-prioritised. These measures are being reviewed constantly in light of new information.

Information for meeting participants

Committee members or external participants who have received a personal invitation to a meeting at ECHA will be entitled to reimbursement for any costs already incurred for travel and accommodation and should contact for these claims to be handled.
