REACH substance evaluation: What you need to know for your business

Once a chemical substance has been registered through REACH, ECHA and Member States will screen that substance to determine whether it is an SVHC (substance of very high concern), and should, therefore, be submitted for authorisation.

REACH substance evaluation affects organisations working with chemicals (either as part of a manufacturing process or as their main source of revenue) and importing, exporting, manufacturing, or retailing in the EU.

This one-day conference will explore the identification, process, context, issues, and consequences of the REACH substance evaluation – everything you need to know for your business. REACH Substance Evaluation follows on from our conference in March 2019: The Future of REACH Authorisation.
