Chemical Compliance Resources
Every product manufactured and brought to market is, in some way, affected by chemicals regulations and restrictions. This could be a requirement to meet a brand’s Restricted Substance List or legislation such as the European REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals).
SATRA has produced a number of webinars to help our members meet chemical compliance obligations.
Webinar - An Update to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011 Food Contact
This webinar, presented by Lorna Harding, a technologist in SATRA’s chemistry team, provides a summary of the new Commission Regulation (EU) 2020/1245 which revises Regulation (EU) 10/2011 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
Webinar - Introduction to REACH (part 1)
This introductory session, presented by Lucy Cove, one of SATRA’s Chemical Technologists, discusses the background of this complex piece of chemical legislation. The requirements for chemicals, what is an article, the mandatory requirements for articles in annex XVII, Substances of Very High Concern (SVHCs) and the enforcement of REACH are all covered.
Webinar - REACH (part 2) Restricted Substances
This session, presented by Lorna Harding, one of SATRA’s Chemical Technologists, expands upon the Introduction to REACH with a focus on the mandatory requirements for consumer products within REACH Annex XVII, including high risk chemicals for various material types and the use of testing to demonstrate compliance.
Webinar - REACH (part 3) Substances of Very High Concern
Once a substance has been identified as a Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) and is included on the candidate list, certain obligations apply to articles that contain the substance. This webinar, presented by Jade Hurley, includes information on the candidate list, what obligations exist and different testing strategies.
