 HANGZHOU, 8 August 2023 – REACH24H is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the 15th Chemical Regulatory Annual Conference (CRAC) in an offline format in November 16-17, 2023. After three years of virtual conferences, we are excited to have the opportunity to bring industry experts and companies together in person to exchange ideas and discuss regulatory changes and market trends in industrial chemicals, pesticides, and recycled plastics sectors.

“For the past 14 years, CRAC has not only been a key event for REACH24H, but also a significant chance for the whole industries to gather around, think together, and break barriers together,” said Cassie Li, deputy general manager of REACH24H Consulting Group.

REACH24H has an over 14-year history of supporting industries with our compliance services. We have been instrumental in bringing the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) to China for the first time in 2009, providing industries with a chance for comprehensive face-to-face exchanges on trade barriers and market changes.
