General data of the course

Overview This course will mainly present Decree EC Nr. 1907/2006 (REACH). REACH means registration, evaluation and authorization of chemicals. The purpose of this Regulation of the European Community is to ensure a high level of protection of human health and the environment, including the promotion of alternative methods for assessment of hazards of substances, as well as the free circulation of substances on the internal market while enhancing competitiveness and innovation. The course will explain principles and obligations for manufacturers, importers and downstream users to ensure that they manufacture, place on the market or use such substances that do not adversely affect human health or the environment.
Target profile of attendees REACH is concerned with people who manufacture, place on the market or use substances that may adversely affect human health or the environment, thus this course is dedicated to the professionals involved in these processes e.g. manufacturer, importer, downstream user or distributor placing on the market a substance or a mixture.
