Web conference “Compliance digital III - Simplified corporate communications about SVHCs in articles”
After their successful first webinar, held in German, the German Environment Agency UBA (Umwelt Bundesamt) is organising a second webinar in English for companies about the digital compliance and the communication about SVHCs in articles on the 21st January 2021 from 10:00 to 15:00.
In 2019 a European smartphone app, known in many countries as “Scan4Chem”, was introduced so that consumers could submit enquiries in accordance with REACH Art. 33(2) about substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in articles. The app is now available in 15 European countries. The launch of the app is being accompanied by a widespread campaign to inform people about their “Right to Know”. At the same time, companies are being informed about their obligations under the REACH Regulation to provide SVHC information on request, and about how they can use the AskREACH IT tools to meet these obligations.
