Intertek Presents Webinar on REACH Dossier Creation



    OTTAWA, Sept. 24 /CNW Telbec/ - Intertek (www.intertek.com/reach) will
present a free one-hour online webinar on Wednesday, October 15th at 10:00 am
EDT (16:00 pm CEST.) The REACH pre-registration window closes on December 1,
2008, but pre-registration is just the first step towards compliance with the
REACH Regulation. If you have successfully pre-registered your substances and
preparations with the ECHA, you will have from 2 to 10 years, depending on
volume of sales and risks associated with the chemicals, to gather all the
information on your substances, construct the dossier requested by the ECHA
and complete the REACH registration of your products.
    The REACH dossier is created from a complex and extensive collection of
data, test results and other information not readily known or easily available
to most producers of substances, preparations and articles outside the
traditional "chemical" industry.
    Join us on October 15th to learn what your next REACH compliance steps
should be and how to plan for successful REACH compliance.

    Questions to be addressed:

    - Do I need a dossier and if so why?
    - Where do I start?
    - How much time have I got?
    - What information do I need?
    - What do I do if I have not got all the information?
    - How much will it cost?
    - Can I offset these costs?

    Who Should Attend?

    - Procurement and supply chain management
    - Regulatory Affairs
    - HSE primes
    - Product management
    - Operations management
    - Those responsible for product compliance and certification.
