Pre-registration for the European chemicals policy Reach (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) begins in June 2008. BASF SE feels the demand for information and advice is "greater than ever," and in response, the group is hosting another expert seminar on Reach on 28 May 2008 in Berlin.
The program is called "Together ready for Reach" and is aimed at manufacturers, users and importers of chemicals from all branches of industry, BASF says.
Experts on Reach from BASF will give 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," said Dr Andreas Kicherer, head of BASF's Success team, in the company's press release about the seminar.
"The queries reaching our team advisors were mainly about pre-registration 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.
