The AskREACH project has hosted a number of events for companies and industry associations regarding substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in their products. A first conference - "Compliance digital - Simplified corporate communication on SVHCs in articles"- took place in Berlin on April 2019 (in German), followed by virtual events in German and English.

At these conferences, the LIFE AskREACH partners explained how companies can improve their communications along the supply chain about SVHCs in articles and fulfil their legal duty to inform consumers on request. The more recent events also included a presentation by the German Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (BAUA) on details of the ⁠REACH⁠ duty to provide information. 

IT tools developed by LIFE AskREACH such as the Scan4Chem app and the AskREACH database were presented together with an overview of the consumer and company campaigns to promote implementation of the IT tools and to raise awareness about the topic. While the earlier events focused mainly on collecting information from companies for the further development of the IT tools, the subsequent conferences in October 2020, January 2021 and October 2021 were focused more on informing companies and answering their questions.

The presentation slides from the event on 21 October 2021 are available. We also include a link to a document that compares the AskREACH database and the SCIP database of the European Chemicals Agency here.
