About this session:


UK REACH : Implementations and Implications

Running on both days, bringing together a daily balanced panel drawn from government/gov agency , industry, association, legal & NGO sources, the UK REACH panel will seek to address this hugely topical and sensitive issue for attending manufacturers, distributors as well as downstream formulator industries, pharma to automotive and other key chemical-user industry groups.

Each panel session provides an opportunity to hear contrasting perspectives from panellists around this key topic, seeking to address ‘real concerns’ from across the industry as well as reflecting day to day sector practicalities. Opening up then into an open Q&A , audience participants get the chance to get up to the minute latest feedback from expert industry panellists.

  • Why UK REACH is “bigger” than REACH
