BASF experts to provide advice on REACH
Just a few weeks before the pre-registration phase of the European chemicals policy REACH begins in June 2008, the demand for extensive information and advice is greater than ever. In response, BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) is hosting another expert seminar on the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (REACH) on May 28, 2008 in Berlin.
The program, entitled "Together ready for REACH," is addressed at manufacturers, users and importers of chemicals from all branches of industry. At the seminar, BASF REACH experts will provide information on all elements of the new regulatory system, including product analysis, registration, and strategic issues relating to product safety and responsibility for the environment.
"We received a lot of positive feedback on our REACH services over the past number of months," says Dr. Andreas Kicherer, head of BASF's Success team. "The queries reaching our team advisors were mainly about preregistration support. We're offering this seminar to respond to the huge interest and still-rising demand of our customers for detailed information on REACH," Kicherer adds.
As the world's leading chemical company – The Chemical Company – BASF is one of the companies in the industry most affected by REACH, and has longstanding experience in the evaluation, testing and registration of chemical entities. BASF's REACH services are packaged in a sustainability service package called Success. Success combines all of BASF's sustainability expertise in the areas of energy, product responsibility, health, safety and environment.
