[Seminar in Germany] China REACH and GHS Compliance Seminar 2016

Seminar Overview

The year of 2015 is by no means an uneventful year for China’s chemical and environmental management. Work safety accidents occurred frequently, with the catastrophic Tianjin Blasts of 12 August attracting the most attention, igniting a huge public outcry for risk management of hazardous chemicals. More and more companies began to realize that there is no such thing as sustainable development without an environmental friendly chemical management. In the meantime, the Chinese authorities have stepped up efforts for intensified regulation, putting into effect the Inventory of Hazardous Chemicals (2015) on 1 May and its corresponding Implementation Guidance on 19 August as well as releasing the revised China New Chemical Substance Notification Guidance and the Measures for the Environmental Management Registration of Hazardous Chemicals on 25 June and 19 October respectively for public consultation.

Chemical substance registration in Taiwan is regulated by two regulations, namely the Regulation of Registration of New and Existing Chemical Substances under TCSCA (effective on 11 Dec 2014) and the Regulation of New Chemical Substances Registration under OSHA (effective on 1 Jan 2015). To facilitate a good enforcement of these regulations, competent authorities in Taiwan took several moves to support the implementation of these regulations by releasing the updated Taiwan Existing Chemical Substance Inventory (TCSI) and the online submission system as well as launching the Phase I Registration. The fact that chemical substances manufactured or imported in Taiwan are regulated by two different legislations brings daunting challenges to companies seeking for regulatory compliance there.

To address these concerns, UMCO and REACH24H will host ‘China REACH and GHS Compliance Seminar 2016’ on 26 April, 2016 in Hamburg, Germany. As China’s foremost regulatory compliance service provider, this seminar promises a chance to pick the brains of China’s preeminent regulatory experts, and take home the most up-to-date regulatory compliance information.


This one-day seminar promises an overview of chemical regulations in China and Taiwan, and will feature a multitude of practically useful China and Taiwan compliance advice. Participants will be provided with a detailed explanation of major chemical regulations, including China New Chemical Substance Notification, China GHS, China Hazardous chemical registration, Taiwan New and Existing Chemical Substances Registration etc.
