"REACH Compliance - Why North American Companies Can't Afford to Ignore this New European Regulation". Non-compliance with REACH will prevent your product from being imported into the EU.

Anthony K. Mallett, Ph.D., Director, Experien Health Sciences (Europe) Ltd.
REACH is the European Union's Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals regulation.
Europe's new REACH regulation has global implications that go well beyond the chemicals industry. North American manufacturers and suppliers of chemical products or articles containing chemical substances cannot afford to ignore this regulation even if they do not have direct sales to the European Union.
REACH came into force in 2007 and the first compliance deadline is 1 December 2008. A strict "no data, no market" provision may create severe market disruption for companies which fail to understand how REACH affects their supply chain.
This web seminar will provide an overview of the REACH regulation with a focus on its impact on companies outside the EU. Information will include a review of the scope of the regulation, compliance deadlines, and describe the activities that should be pursued in order to avoid business disruption.
Several common business scenarios and frequently asked questions will be addressed. A special guest speaker from a global manufacturer of chemicals and textile products will provide his perspective of the regulation and its near-term impacts on the global marketplace.
THIS PROGRAM IS INTENDED FOR:
This web seminar will provide valuable information to individuals who are otherwise unfamiliar with the REACH regulation but who have responsibility for sales and marketing, customer service, R&D, procurement, logistics, supply chain management, legal, and/or regulatory compliance within an organization that manufactures or supplies industrial or consumer products.
