Learning outcomes

Training Description

REACH is the acronym for the new European Union regulation covering the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals.

After the initial phase of REACH registrations in 2010 and 2013, many lessons have been learned and dossier needed extensive changes or improvement following evaluation by ECHA. However, for many registrants, the 2018 deadline for substances manufactured or imported in the range 1 – 100 was their first experience with registration under REACH and as these start to be fully checked and reviewed, more work will be needed.

The industry needed to rely extensively on consultants and consortia to prepare the original submissions, but it is essential for all registrants to understand the requirements as they will be liable for maintaining and amending their dossiers either on their own or collectively with other Joint Registrants.

Mark Selby
Mark SelbyOwner
Denehurst Chemical Safety Ltd

Mark Selby has worked in the area of regulatory science for over 20 years, starting with a UK-based speciality chemical manufacturer at the time that the EINECS list was closing. This background in industry provided a valuable insight into the problems facing manufacturing organisations with limited resources and tight schedules, but which needed to keep up with legislation.

Work surrounding chemical supply legislation and other regulatory testing led to contact with a multi-national Contract Research Organisation working mainly for the pharmaceutical industry and Mark was employed by them in 1989 to set up a consulting service to cover chemical supply legislation. Work also included providing advice to colleagues to ensure that regulatory testing for chemical supply was performed effectively and that laboratory staff had access to the correct equipment and test guidelines. Working now as an independent consultant, trading as Denehurst Chemical Safety Ltd, Mark advises industry on the use of data for classification and labelling, the testing of chemical products and submission processes in support of EU chemical supply legislation. This includes a substantial amount of writing and training work, including lecturing for all levels of industry which aims to link the regulatory constraints with practical solutions for producers and users of chemical products.

As well as a trainer for the CHCS (http://www.chcs.org.uk) and for the ETCIC REACH training at Hull University (http://www.etcic.com), Mark works with REACHReady (http://www.reachready.co.uk) as one of their advisors and trainers. Mark has also been involved with the European Commission funded ‘Twinning’ projects helping new EU Member States.

Recent work has included training and support for European Competent Authorities and ECHA foundation courses to help scientific and regulatory training of personnel working in various agencies.

  1. Get the timing right.
    Many people are afraid to request for training budget, because they can’t seem to find the “perfect time” to do it. Well, there’s no perfect time to ask for it, but there are definitely some moments that are better than others. For instance, if your boss is about to take a two week vacation, he/she might be in a good mood. If he/she just lost a major account, may not be wise at that juncture.
  2. Make a case for yourself
    When you ask for budget, you should be prepared with specific details and explanations about what is in it for the company and you’re superior. If you go into a meeting and just say, “I want to get budget for a conference,” it’s likely that your request won’t be taken seriously. If you want to plan ahead, then you should be prepared to explain the following points:
    1. Start by stating your accomplishments
    2. Show that you’re ready for more responsibility and eager to learn
    3. Describe:
    a) How this event will increase your productivity?
    b) How you will need less supervision
    c) How you can bring back the knowledge to the company
    4. Follow up
You might find free to attend events which are usually organized by a solution/service provider within the industry. Unlike at free to attend events, on a paid event you will find more diverse industry knowledge rather than presentations related to services or solutions.
In case you cannot attend for both days, you can always attend for just 1 day of the event. In this case we will send you all presentations of the 2 days. The participation fee is 70% of the original investment. In case you would like to attend the event for just 1 day please contact us on booking[at]glceurope.com
In case you are busy on 1 of the days, you certainly can split the 2 day conference with one of your colleague. All you need to do is send us an e-mail to booking[at]glceurope.com
We understand that not all senior-level professionals might be available on the dates. As the event is an annual event, most of the attendees try to postpone their engagements or send a small group from their teams to benefit from the conference.
