Data sharing activities with South Korean companies were the focus of discussions held during a recent meeting between officials from South Korea’s Ministry of Environment (MoE) and representatives of EU companies. The MoE is the Ministry responsible for implementing the Act on the Registration and Evaluation of Chemicals, so called Korea REACH.
Willi Muenninghoff, Project Manager and lead for global activities in ReachCentrum, attended the meeting and contributed to the discussions by underlining the importance of sharing data that is already available and used in the EU. Data sharing will avoid the need for additional animal testing, will be cost-effective for Korean companies and will safeguard the work done for EU dossiers.93 of the 510 priority existing chemicals that must be registered by June 2018, are managed by 44 different EU consortia working with ReachCentrum. A data brokerage platform was launched last year to facilitate the sharing of available endpoint-related data between the data owner and South Korea. Known as the ReachCentrum Data Brokerage Platform, the platform enables owners of data (companies or consortia) to sell the right to refer to the data to parties registering substances under Korea REACH. Shared data can take form of Studies, Robust Studies Summaries and Chemical Safety Reports.
ReachCentrum is currently updating the platform to enable global data sharing with a user-friendly experience. Additionally, following the successful EU example, an LoA shop will be launched after the summer break.

ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency, is organizing a webinar on how to prepare a REACH 2018 registration as a IUCLID dossier. The webinar, which will be held on October 4 from 11:00 - 12:00 EET (GMT+2), targets those actors who are registering a substance for the first time and want to know how to use IUCLID to create a registration dossier.
The webinar will cover topics ranging from the installation of the IUCLID 6 application to the creation of a IUCLID 6 registration dossier, including the verification that all required information has been filled-in, using the embedded validation assistant. Furthermore, it will show a registration dossier for a member of a joint submission can be created online.
Further information including the registration form is available from the ECHA website.
Year-on-year FEICA, the European voice of the adhesive and sealant industry, manages to attract a record number of industry professionals to discuss market drivers and niches, innovation, sustainability, new technical trends and technological mega-trends. The FEICA Conference and EXPO is established as the premier event for the adhesive and sealant industry, providing essential insights into the key issues affecting the industry and ample networking opportunities for formulators and raw materials suppliers to discuss the latest trends and wider business environment. The event will be held in Vienna from 7 to 9 September, and it will host the presentation of our ReachCentrum Project Manager Yvan Bisschops on “REACH 2018: the business impact”.
REACH isn't only a regulatory requirement but also (and probably mainly) a business issue, with direct and indirect costs for companies involved. in the Registration process. In addition to that, potentially serious outcomes for the business could arise from the REACH process in the event the chemical is placed under Restriction or Authorisation status. The outcomes may include new market constraints or limitations of use.
Last but not least: non registration of some chemicals in 2018 could force downstream users to take over the REACH role of the producers/importers and put the REACH registration duty on their shoulders.
