The workshop focuses on the results of the REACH Compliance Project which revealed data gaps and deficient data quality in REACH registrations.

REACH, Europe’s overarching chemicals regulation, has an impact on a wide range of other EU regulations, e.g. classification and labelling, consumer product and toy safety, RoHS, food contact materials, construction products, workers safety, waste and water legislations. The REACH Compliance Project is a joint project of the BfR and UBA and investigates human health and environmental data availability in REACH registrations of chemicals above the production volume of 100 tonnes per year. Further information is available from ECHA and UBA.

The major aim of this workshop is to promote the dialogue among REACH stakeholders and to support registrants with recommendations for improvements. We invite all stakeholders interested in the data quality of REACH registrations to participate.

BfR – German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment
UBA – German Environment Agency
ECHA – European Chemicals Agency, Finland
