REACH for glass

REACH for Glass

REACH - Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals 

This event has now happened.

If you are interested in similar training please contact training@britglass.org.uk 

REACH Enforcement Regulations 2008 started an ongoing process to review use of chemicals in industry. This affects the whole glass supply chain – and companies urgently need to understand the implications and impact for their business.

How to comply with REACH depends on where you sit in the supply chain – but almost every business in the UK will have a responsibility under it. Glass manufacturers, for example, need to inform suppliers of their specific use of substances (that have not already been registered) one year before the June 2018 registration deadline. 

This training will be delivered in partnership with the REACH Centre – leading international providers of regulatory guidance and cover content shaped especially for the glass industry by British Glass, with input from its members.

BREXIT update: The glass sector must still comply with the REACH regulations. Any changes, following the leave vote, are likely to take around two years to implement – and even if the REACH regulations are replaced in UK law, companies trading with the EU will still need to be compliant.
