The AskREACH project has so far hosted three events for companies and associations regarding substances of very high concern in their products. A first event on "Compliance digital - Simplified corporate communication on SVHCs in articles" took place in Berlin on 10 April 2019 (in German), followed by virtual events on 29 October 2020 (in German) and 21 January 2021 (in English).
In these events, the LIFE AskREACH partners presented ways that companies can improve their communications about SVHCs in articles along the supply chain and fulfil their legal duty to inform consumers. The events on 29.10.2020 and 21.01.2021 also included a presentation by the German Institute for Occupational Safety and Health on details of the REACH duty to provide information.
The IT tools developed by LIFE AskREACH were presented and an overview of the consumer and company campaigns was given. While the focus in April 2019 was mainly on collecting information from companies for the further development of the IT tools, the focus in October 2020 and January 2021 was on informing companies and answering their questions.
The presentation slides from the English event on 21.01.2021 are available here. We also include a link to a document comparing the AskREACH database and the SCIP database of the European Chemicals Agency (in English).
Another virtual English-language event for companies will take place on October 21st, 2021. Please register here.
