Event Details

Following on from our 2016 autumn seminar, this year’s event will provide a guide to legislative issues impacting on the speciality chemical sector in the next 12 months and beyond.


The seminar will once more review the status of BREXIT as of 28 November 2017 and present the BACS position following further consultation with BACS members and the wider speciality chemicals sector, for example through the ACA (Alliance of Chemical Associations).


Once again, the current status of implementation of the BPR and related issues will be summarised.


As REACH 2018 will soon be upon us, presentations will be given on REACH and its impact on downstream users as well as a current update on the status of polymers under REACH.


Speakers on other topics to note which warrant further attention include the debate on microplastics and pending UK legislation and, recently, the greater focus on endocrine disruptors/modulators.


Contaminated land is a new topic to this annual event, and related legislation and its implementation will be presented.


Other topics may be included as time permits.


The programme is shown below along with a booking form.
