Proceedings of 9th International Conference on the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals and its Impact on US Trade

30 November 2010 marked the deadline for chemical producers and importers to register all high volume and potentially toxic substances. Chemicals that have not been registered with the requisite safety information by this date are to be withdrawn from the market under the "no data, no market" ruling, giving the potential to cause untold chaos in chemical supply chains. Indeed, successes and failures from this first set of REACH registrations in 2010 are expected to impact the use of products on the EU market and b eyond, as well as influence chemical legislation initiatives across the globe. In particular, industry and regulators will become engaged with Evaluation during 2011, where data submitted in registration dossiers are reviewed and potentially challenged.

In 2011 customers in the EU will begin facing the knock-on requirements of registrations from 2010, changes in classification under the EU implementation of the Globally Harmonised System (GHS), conditions imposed by Exposure Scenarios and even 'uses advised against'. Not only are there widespread concerns over the EU's implementation of the GHS for the classification, labelling and packaging of substances (CLP), but 2011 also brings new obligations, such as the need to notify substances of very high concern (SVHC) to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). In the US plans to introduce the GHS will undoubtedly cause similar fears.

At the same time, the next registration deadline is only 2 years away. This second phase of Registration presents additional management hurdles, as it involves a large number of substances that may be relatively 'data poor' compared with substances registered in 2010. Companies must already begin planning, in particular with regards to budgeting for this next step in REACH.

2011 therefore presents industry and regulators with a critical year for gaining experience with how REACH actually works in practice. In turn, changes in official guidance and a legislative review in 2012 offer the possibility of improvements to the workability of REACH.

Whether you're a cosmetics company, an aerospace manufacturer or a raw material supplier, REACH applies to you. These proceedings cover all the presentations from the conference which enveloped some of the vital lessons that have been learned, how the next deadlines in 2013 will affect the way you do business and what damage limitation controls can be put in place for 2011 when many fail to meet their obligations.
