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.
