REACH SMEs workshop
Brussels, 10-11 December 2013
The European Commission, in co-operation with ECHA, organised a workshop to find solutions to REACH registration problems and to bring together SMEs and larger companies.
The REACH Regulation is a challenge and an opportunity for all companies in the chemicals sector. In view of the upcoming 2018 registration deadline for smaller tonnages (1tonne to 10tonnes per year), many small, medium and micro-sized enterprises will be involved. Whether you are one of those, working to deliver REACH-related services to SMEs or representing these companies at EU level, whether you represent a trade sector and wanted to contribute, whether you represent a large company, the Commission is aware of the challenges ahead and was very pleased to hear your voice!
The workshop scheduled for 10 and 11 December in Brussels offered an opportunity for those in the front line (especially small, medium and micro businesses) to exchange and discuss with other REACH actors. Together, we could identify problems ahead and foster solutions
