Robert Kiefer Speaking at PSX 2023

The session provided attendees with valuable insights into the latest developments, highlights, and trends in chemical regulations in China, China’s Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. The topics covered included China’s Measures for the Environmental Management of New Chemical Substances (MEE Order No. 12, China-REACH), Taiwan Region’s Toxic and Concerned Chemical Substance Control Act (TCCSCA), South Korea’s K-REACH, K-BPR, and K-OSHA, as well as Japan’s Chemical Substances Control Law (CSCL).

During the Q&A session at PSX 2023, attendees actively engaged with REACH24H’s speakers, seeking expert advice on various topics. One question raised was regarding the availability of public data for Phase 2 registration of the Taiwan Region’s PEC (Priority Existing Chemical) chemicals. In response, the speaker explained that public data refers to information officially announced on platforms such as the ECHA website, NITE Japan database, and US EPA. However, considering data risk issues, REACH24H suggested accessing data authorized by the data owner and utilizing it for the registration process.

Another question focused on the acceptance of QSAR/READ-ACROSS reports for China REACH registration. The speaker shared that the Chinese authorities have exhibited a more positive attitude compared to the previous regulations. Particularly for long-term testing data, such as two-generation testing and carcinogenicity testing, if the existing data is sufficient for assessment and well-prepared, there is a possibility of acceptance by the Chinese regulatory authority.
