    OTTAWA, March 27 /CNW Telbec/ - NautaDutilh (, one of
Europe's leading law firms, in collaboration with Intertek
(, a leader in testing and certification, and DHV
(, a leading international consultancy and engineering group, will
host a seminar on REACH Compliance Strategies and Options in Rotterdam,
Netherlands, on April 10, 2008. The programme for the 1-day seminar includes
REACH experts from both government and industry addressing the issues and
questions related to REACH compliance.
    June 1, 2007 the European chemical regulation on the Registration,
Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemical substances (REACH) became effective.
REACH is the broadest substances legislation in the world encompassing both
existing and new substances, substances in preparations, and finished
articles. The question is therefore not if a company will have to take
measures concerning REACH, but which actions, when and how.

    The REACH Seminar on Strategies and Options is set to address:

    - What preparatory measures should be taken to comply with REACH?
    - Which products are affected by REACH?
    - What are a company's REACH responsibilities and what actions are
    - What should a company's REACH compliance strategy be?
    - Do companies have legal options under REACH that should be explored?
    - Should companies prepare their (pre)registration submission
      independently or jointly with others?
    - Are there elements of a company's REACH activities that should be

    One of the first REACH compliance measures that require action is the
pre-registration of chemicals, from June 1 until December 1, 2008. In
anticipation of the approaching pre-registration requirement, we invite you to
participate in a seminar and discussion of the REACH compliance strategies on
10 April 2008 at NautaDutilh in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
