Intertek Ageus Solutions to Host a Free REACH Only Representative Webinar on March 18, 2008



    KANATA, ON, March 4 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek Ageus Solutions
(www.ageussolutions.com) is pleased to host a free online webinar on the
"Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals" (REACH) Only
Representative option for non-EU producers of regulated chemicals, substances,
preparations and finished articles. Before December 1, 2008, non-EU producers
will have to decide between four choices for REACH pre-registration which will
have a vast impact on their future position and ability to sell products in
the European marketplace:

    
    1. Pre-register their products through an importer
    2. Pre-register their products through an Only Representative
    3. Request that pre-registration be performed by upstream suppliers
    4. Terminate sales of their products to the EU.

    Join us on March 18th at 2:00 pm Eastern Time for a free 1-hour online
webinar to review the principal mechanisms allowing non-EU companies to
participate in the pre-registration and registration processes, and achieve
REACH compliance.

      REACH
