Global Chemical Notification Registration and Toxic Substance Management Webinar Series

Join our experts for our series of webinars concerning the latest topics, regulations and updates related to global chemical notification registration and toxic substance management.

Global New Chemicals and Toxic Substances Management

Recorded April 30, 2019

Before marketing a new chemical, the manufacturer/importer, in order to meet the various national and international legal requirements, has to submit information in the form of a notification or registration (e.g. phys-chem, toxicological, ecotoxicological data) to support each Government’s risk assessment to determine whether the substance poses an unreasonable risk to the environment and/or human health. Some countries require pre-manufacture/import notification while for many jurisdictions, the chemical notification process is a tiered system requiring subsequent notifications as the annual amount of the imported or manufactured substance increases. Further, there are expanding global initiatives to assess chemicals already in the marketplace and subsequently take action on any chemicals found to be harmful to human health and/or the environment. Government risk management initiatives are investigating the incorporation of informed substitution and alternatives assessment to identify candidates to replace existing toxics. Throughout all of these data submission and assessment activities it is critical that companies request and substantiate claims to protect their confidential business Information (CBI). You will come away from this webinar with an understanding of the basic elements of chemical inventories and chemicals management programs around the world and an awareness for the compliance concepts that will allow for global market access.



Turkish REACH: Be Prepared for KKDIK Registration

Recorded May 2, 2019

In June 2017 the new Chemical Regulation KKDIK (Turkish REACH) was published in the Turkish Gazette and this Regulation will replace the previous Chemical Regulation (CICR). As a result, all substances being on the Turkish market will have now again to be pre-registered under KKDIK, in order to maintain a phase-in status ensuring a transitional period prior to final registration, allowing the manufacturers to continue placing their substances on the Turkish market. 

According to the KKDIK it will be possible to pre-register the substances starting from December 23rd, 2018 to December 2020. After December 2020 to December 2023 all the substance will have to be registered.

TSCA SNURs, Strategic Planning, Practical Points and How to Communicate with Your Downstream User

Recorded May 30, 2019

With the reformed Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) came a more conservative approach to risk assessment. This approach leads to more restrictions on the notified substance, mainly in the form of Significant New Use Rules (SNURS). This webinar discusses ideas for strategic business planning in understanding and working with SNURs, practical points for the manager dealing with the SNUR and options of communicating with the downstream user.



Key Aspects of the Regulations and Nanomaterials in Canada

Recorded June 11, 2019

We will then review the obligations to submit notifications for Nanomaterials in Canada.



Obligations of EU REACH After 2018 Deadline

Recorded June 26, 2019

The 31 May 2018 was the last REACH registration deadline for the substances manufactured or imported in the European Economic Area (EEA) in a specific tonnage band (1-100 tons/y). Hence, the REACH 2018 deadline does not mean, by any means, the end of REACH. The activities of registrants, downstream user, importers will continue.



Canada: The New Substances Process

Recorded July 11, 2019

TSCA Sections of Note Other Than Chemical Notifications (i.e. section 8, 12, 13) and Titles of Note Under TSCA (i.e. VI formaldehyde /wood, IV lead)

Recorded July 25, 2019

The primary federal chemical management law in the U.S. is the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) as amended by the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act. The regulation contains much more than the new substance reviews in Section 5. This webinar will explore responsibilities under section 8(e) risk reporting and 8(c) adverse environmental or health effect, section 13 importing and section 12 exporting. We will also review the various titles under TSCA especially the changes in Title VI for formaldehyde testing.

Recovered Substances From Waste: Obligations under REACH

Recorded August 29, 2019

As soon as a material ‘ceases to be waste’, REACH requirements apply in principle in the same way as to any other material. This webinar will cover REACH-registration obligations for recovered substances from waste with focus on the exemption under Article 2(7)(d) of REACH and how to benefit from it as recovery operator including some examples.
