REACH Essentials

REACH Essentials Training Course Overview

The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals (REACH) Essentials course is designed to provide industry professionals with not only an overview of the new EU chemicals policy, but also the essential tools for compliance to its requirements. While this one-day course assumes that attendees bring with them minimal knowledge of the Regulation, it offers attendees the opportunity to address specific specialized topics, including formulating registration dossiers and chemical safety reports in addition to understanding changes in SDS. The emphasis of the course will be predominately topics of interest to industry professionals such as the registration process, requirements for downstream-users, data sharing, and documentation. In light of the complexity of REACH’s scope and staggered implementation dates for its provisions, the course will include a comprehensive discussion on the Regulation’s timeline and applicability as well as any affected legislation. The REACH Essentials course is focused on the regulation itself and specifically addresses REACH requirements in terms of the regulatory text. Upon conclusion of the course, students should be able to competently navigate the intricate web of definitions, implementation schedules, and requisite documentation required for compliance to REACH.

Typically offered on consecutive days, REACH Essentials and REACH Practical Implementation, when taken together, provide attendees with the necessary tools to begin implementing compliance to this very intricate and complex regulation. While not required, it is recommended that attendees take REACH Essentials prior to the Practical Implementation course.
