Overview of REACH and CLP regulations
Companies that handle substances or mixtures or articles, must comply with the REACH and CLP regulations, even if they only purchase and use them for the production of articles. In this case, they fall under the definition of downstream users. Even if the articles or mixtures produced fall under other sector-specific regulations (e.g. medical devices, biocides…) this does not mean that they are automatically exempt from the more general chemical regulations.
The course aims to increase basic regulatory knowledge for operators who need to be familiar with the main aspects of the REACH and CLP Regulations: practical guidance will be given on the obligations to be fulfilled during both procurement and marketing.
