We are hiring – We are looking for a Senior Regulatory Consultant
The number of regulations introducing safe use and sustainability requirements or restricting the use hazardous chemicals as such and as part of products (formulations, articles) in the EU has been increasing quickly over the past ten years. This trend is expected to continue. The EU REACH Regulation has been the major driver of this development. An important recent example in the EU is the SCIP database under the revised Waste Framework Directive, which includes a complex notification obligation for suppliers of articles containing certain hazardous substances starting from 5 January 2021. Similar requirements taking the example of EU REACH are also introduced in other jurisdictions, such as in Turkey and the UK (after its withdrawal from the EU). The requirements a typically complex and have to be implemented in a multifaceted business environment. A specific challenge is the granular substance-level regulation, even in the most complex industrial products.
