Dortmund - As of 1 June 2018, chemical substances may only be manufactured or imported once they have been registered. In particular, small and medium-sized businesses now have to decide whether they still want to register. Information and assistance is provided by the REACH - CLP - Biocide Helpdesk within the workshop "Successful Registration 2018: Now or Never!". The workshop will take place on Wednesday, February 21, 2018, in the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAuA) in Dortmund.
The end of the last transitional phase for phase-in materials is fast approaching, as the third and final registration phase will end on 31 May 2018 under REACH. Companies now have to decide whether the added value of a substance justifies registration or whether production or import should be stopped first. Especially with substances with low production volumes, companies often make that decision at the last moment. Factors that influence this decision include the cost of registration and the expense of creating a registration dossier to submit to ECHA.
At first glance, the registration seems too expensive and too expensive, but the REACH Regulation offers many ways to reduce costs and simplify the submission process. With its workshop , the REACH-CLP-Biocide Helpdesk is therefore particularly aimed at small and medium-sized companies, who are wondering if and how they can register shortly before the deadline. The workshop is divided into two blocks. In the morning, helpdesk experts will post relevant registration topics. In the afternoon, there is the opportunity to discuss company-specific issues and solutions in one-on-one discussions with help desk specialists.
To participate in the workshop "Successfully Register 2018: Now or Never!" a fee of 70 euros will be charged. Further information and the detailed program can be found in the BAuA website at www.baua.de/termine . Here is also an online registration possible.
