ECHA Newsletter now online
November’s issue of the ECHA Newsletter gives the latest on the number of registrations received so far for the 2018 deadline and an update on the feasibility study carried out for a central notification portal for the poison centres.
Helsinki, 16 November 2017 – You can also read more about Geert Dancet’s thoughts as his time as ECHA’s Executive Director draws to a close, a proposal to regulate the ingredients in tattoo inks to ensure they are safe, what to expect from harmonised biocides enforcement and how the substances on ChemSec’s SIN List are being addressed.
We tell you more about the benefits of IUCLID Cloud for SMEs, what exporters should do if they are trading hazardous chemicals with non-EU countries, how authorisation has stimulated the substitution of hazardous substances, and also give you a chance to look back at how the classification process has progressed on the 50th anniversary of its introduction in the EU.
Our guest columnists give their expert views on assessing whether REACH data are appropriate for identifying hazards and assessing risks, and the progress made in using safer foams to fight fire.
The Newsletter is also always available in PDF format on our Newsletter web page.
