About this Session
Running on both days, bringing together a daily balanced panel drawn from government/gov agency , industry, association, NGO & legal 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.
From policy direction to implementation, each panel session provides an opportunity to hear up to date contrasting perspectives around this key topic, seeking to address ‘real concerns’ from across the industry as well as reflecting day to day sector practicalities. Opening then into an open Q&A , audience participants get the chance to get up to the minute latest feedback from expert industry panellists.
