Event - Detail

  • REACH&CLP Annual Conference 2023

    The REACH&CLP Luxembourg Helpdesk is pleased to invite you to its annual conference, which will take place at the Skip Pavilion in Belval, on Tuesday 5 December 2023 from 9:30 to 12:30.

For its new edition, the annual REACH&CLP conference will return to its face-to-face format and will review the new European legislation published in recent months and the new obligations that this entails for companies. To do this, the REACH&CLP Luxembourg Helpdesk will be accompanied by external speakers.

During the event, attention will therefore be focused on the key topics of the moment, such as:

  • The proposed general restriction on PFAS;
  • Legislation relating to fluorinated greenhouse gases;
  • Activities relating to the ECHA Socio-Economic Analysis Committee (SEAC);
  • Latest updates under REACH & CLP 2023 and implementation in Luxembourg.

As in previous events, the participants will also have the opportunity to ask all the questions they have to the attending experts.

This year, the participants are, after 4 years, once again cordially invited to a welcome coffee and a lunch/coffee break which will give the opportunity to exchange, in a friendly setting, with all the members of the REACH&CLP Helpdesk but also with all the speakers and participants present during this conference.

Public

This event is addressed to all companies (manufacturers, importers, downstream users of chemicals, article producers), as well as national authorities and consulting companies active in the field of REACH and CLP.

Programme

The presentations will be held in French or in English depending on the speaker. No simultaneous translation will be provided.
