REACH Update - Updated guidance for SME's on 2018 Registration deadline

The UK Chemicals Stakeholder Forum (UKCSF) was formed in September 2000 to advise the UK government on managing risks to the environment and to human health via the environment that may result from the production, distribution and use of chemicals.

The UKSCF has a particular focus in reviewing the effectiveness of REACH in realising its goals from the perspective of UK stakeholder feedback and in assessing the effectiveness of the UK competent authority in delivering its obligations under REACH.

The latest meeting has led to an update regarding the user-friendly guidance on the 2018 Reach Registration deadline. FIRA Members can login and view/download a summary of the changes below.
