All organisations and individuals interested in or affected by the chemicals regulations are considered as ECHA's stakeholders and are welcome to participate in the Agency's work.
ECHA is committed to openness and transparency and considers regular two-way dialogue with its stakeholders to be important. Therefore, the Agency involves stakeholders in many activities and even in decision-making.
How to participate
ECHA arranges several events and workshops throughout the year, often with a possibility to discuss bilaterally with the Agency's staff. The biggest annual event is the Stakeholders' Day which is open to all interested stakeholders. In many cases, you can follow our events online. The Agency also arranges webinars on different topics.
The Agency encourages stakeholders to provide information related to several processes. This can be done through public consultations, which are published on ECHA's website.
Accredited Stakeholder Organisations
ECHA works in cooperation with a number of umbrella organisations from different fields and sectors, all working at an EU level and representative of their area of competence. These Accredited Stakeholder Organisations contribute with their knowledge and help the Agency in reaching out to wider audiences. If there is a specific topic that you wish to discuss, you can always contact the organisation representing your field.
How to become an Accredited Stakeholder Organisation

Cooperation with Accredited Stakeholder Organisations
Working together with Accredited Stakeholder Organisations contributes to an efficient information flow both from the field to the Agency and vice versa.
