EU Chemical Regulatory Compliance in a Nutshell

EU Chemical Regulatory Compliance in a Nutshell – Training Course Overview

While the chemical industry has always been highly regulated, a more stringent framework has been implemented over the last 10 years to coincide with the introduction of the Globally Harmonised System (GHS).

The GHS standards are being enforced in to European market with two key regulations; REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals), and the introduction of the Globally Harmonised System for classification and labelling (Known as Classification, Labelling and Packaging, CLP in Europe). Other legislation, covering Transportation of Dangerous Goods (TDG – Road\Rail\Inland Waterways, Sea and Air), Biocides, Aerosols, Detergents, Plant Protection Products, SEVESO (Control of major accidents and hazards), Chemical Waste, has subsequently been subject to amendments in order to better fit with the objectives set out by REACH and CLP.
