France to hold REACH preparation webinars

The French Union of Chemical Industries (UIC) and the French environment ministry have signed an agreement committing to hold a series of workshops over the next 14 months to help industry understand its obligations under REACH. According to the UIC, around 20 webinars will be organised to help companies prepare for the 2013 registration deadline, noting that the regulation remains “complex, notably for SMEs”. The webinars will focus on three themes: the registration process; supply chain communication; and the processes of authorisation and restriction. Further information is available at: Press release
