ChemADVISOR's experts have created a number of online courses that can be offered to your audience.

EU CLP: Alternative Chemical Name for a Substance in Mixtures 

Manufacturers or importers who place mixtures on the EU market and are concerned about disclosing the full composition of a mixture, on the label or in the Safety Data Sheet (SDS), can request the use of an alternative chemical name for a substance to protect their confidential business information.  Requests that follow the classification criteria of CLP ((EC) 1272/2008) should be submitted to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).  In the webinar we will discuss the substance criteria to qualify for an alternative chemical name. We will show how to prepare and submit the request dossier to ECHA. 


The recast to the European Union’s RoHS Directive (2002/95/EC) was published in the Official Journal, July 1, 2011. This webinar will bring you up to date with compliance requirements for manufacturers, importers, and distributers of electrical and electronic equipment.  In order to ensure that business can continue without interruption in the EU Market, companies will need to comply with the new requirements and new deadlines under the RoHS recast.  The publication of the RoHS recast is not the only concern of the electronic industry. Other relevant Community legislation such as Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals (REACH) share similar limitations on industry. The last part of the webinar will make you aware of which parts of the EU REACH Regulation to pay special attention to, specifically the webinar will give a brief overview of Authorization and SVHCs under REACH.  Join us for this one hour webinar to find out how RoHS and REACH will impact your product and access to the EU market.

 Extended Safety Data Sheets 

This half-day online course is to provide an overview of the requirements for SDSs and extended Safety Data Rheets (eSDSs) in the EU. REACH Annex II has new information that needs to be included in SDSs. The REACH regulation also has requirements for placing relevant exposure scenarios into an annex of the SDS. There are several options for including exposure scenarios in SDSs. The course will cover information requirements for SDSs, exposure scenarios, and eSDSs, including consistency checks, information relevant for downstream users and where to find information.

CLP and REACH:C&L Notification

CLP stands for the Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008 on the Classification, Labelling and Packaging of substances and mixtures. CLP introduces the United Nations Globally Harmonized System (UN GHS) for classification and labelling of chemicals into the European Union (EU). The CLP Regulation entered into force on January 20, 2009. In this half day online course we will explain in detail what CLP does mean for EU manufacturers and importers of chemicals. We will discuss the criteria when a manufacturer or importer has to notify the new C&L Inventory, and which substances have to be notified to the C&L Inventory.

REACH for Article Manufacturers, Importers, and Distributors
The REACH for article manufacturers, importers, and distributors course is designed to provide industry professionals with an essential overview of the REACH requirements and obligations for substances in articles. The course is focused on the part of the new EU chemicals policy that deals with articles, and will provide the students the tools for compliance to its requirements. Following the latest developments of the Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC), manufacturers and importers of articles might have obligations to submit a notification dossier to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) with regard to substances on the Candidate List, and with some criteria such as import amounts and substance concentration threshold limits.

REACH CSA/CSR/ES/eSDS: DNELs and PNECs (Risk Characterisation and Exposure Estimation) 

In this one-hour webinar, the REACH requirements for risk characterization and exposure estimation will be explained . The evaluation process for human health and environmental endpoints will be presented. Emphasis will be placed on exposure estimation processes, including the tiered approach. Course attendees will learn how to characterize hazards, as well as to determine Derived No-Effect-Levels (DNEL) for the relevant human health endpoints and Predicted No-effect-Effect levels (PNEC) for the environment endpoints. Practical examples of DNEL and PNEC derivation will be provided. The methods to refine the hazard assessment to make relevant are reviewed.

REACH for Executives 

This one hour, high level overview is designed to provide busy executives and business managers with a basic understanding of REACH and its potential business impacts.  The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals (REACH) is an obligatory new chemicals management program in the European Union.  REACH does not only have an impact on EU-based manufacturers and importers but the new Regulation also affects U.S. manufacturers, exporters, and companies within the entire supply chain.  It affects a broad range of businesses dealing with chemicals or products containing chemicals, including products like furniture, car parts, electronics, paint, clothes, and cleaning products.  In certain cases non-chemical manufacturers are affected by REACH as well.  In our one hour webinar we will guide executives and business managers through the REACH challenges

REACH - R&D: PPORDs and SR&D Substances 

The target audience of this one hour online webinar are Hazard Communication Specialists and REACH and CLP project and implementation staff members.  Under REACH, any substance manufactured or imported in a quantity of less than 1 metric tonne per year does not need to be registered. Consequently, substances manufactured, imported or used for the purpose of scientific research and development are exempted from registration obligations. But, for certain import amounts the submission of a PPORD notification might be required.  Also, the manufacturer or importer of a substance for the purpose of scientific research and development, who places that substance on the EU market and who has not already submitted a registration, needs to notify to ECHA the information related to its classification and labelling if the substance meets the criteria for classification as dangerous according to the new CLP Regulation.  In certain cases, suppliers of such substances might need to provide a SDS or other relevant information to the users of the substance.

REACH - SVHC's, Authorization, and Restrictions 

The target audience of this one hour online webinar are Hazard Communication Specialists, and REACH projects, and implementation staff members.  For Substances of Very High Concern, an Authorization under the REACH Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 will be required for their use and their placing on the EU market. The substances required to be authorized are substances which are either CMRs Category 1 and 2, PBT/vPvBs, or identified from scientific evidence as causing probable serious effects to humans or the environment.  The restrictions procedure under the REACH Regulation (EC) 1907/2006 enables the EU Commission and ECHA to regulate EU-wide conditions for the manufacture, placing on the market or use of certain substances where there is a risk to human health or the environment or the prohibition of any of these activities, if necessary. All activities with a substance which are not restricted are allowed under REACH unless the substance is included in the Authorization system. Any substance on its own, in a preparation or in an article may be subject to EU-wide restrictions if it is demonstrated that risks need to be addressed on an EU-wide basis.
