Beyond REACH

Recent changes to REACH legislation and its guidance, the substance identity focus, etc., make it challenging to meet the 2018 deadline and to register new substances. Companies should consider a global approach to testing of industrial chemicals, including regions such as China or USA with its updated TSCA requirements.

This presentation discusses the cost effectiveness of taking a more global approach to REACH program designs by including endpoints and studies to fulfill a wider range of regulatory requirements. Recent changes to REACH will be reviewed alongside alterations to other guidelines, such as TSCA.
