In recent years, the Chinese government has gradually strengthened the supervision of hazardous chemicals. This year witnessed the implementation of the "one enterprise, one product, one code" management system of hazardous chemicals throughout the country. The registration system of hazardous chemicals put into use on February 16, 2022. Facing the transformation of the old and new systems, many enterprises encountered some registration difficulties. CIRS will organize a free webinar to introduce the "one enterprise, one product, one code" system.

It has been more than a year since the updated "Measures for the Environmental Management Registration of New Chemical Substances" (or China MEE Order 12th, known as China REACH) entered into force. Compared with the previous MEP Order 7th, the Chinese authority is becoming stricter in reviewing registration dossiers. Registrants may have to submit supplemental information back-and-forth. To help registrants better compile the registration dossiers, CIRS is to organize a free webinar regarding how Chinese authorities are reviewing the dossiers both in completeness review and expert committee evaluation stages, what are the main supplemental information required by the authorities and the counter-measures.
From the 1st of January 2021, companies who are placing Consumer and Professional mixtures on the EU market are required to complete a Poison Centre Notification (PCN) through the harmonized notification system governed by ECHA.

The PCN will allow medical professionals to have sufficient knowledge about a chemical when responding to a medical emergency. In this webinar CIRS will explore the regulation further, detail the information required for the submission and provide insights from our practical experience dealing with such notifications.
