Conference on the New European Chemicals Policy within the enlarged Union “Chemlargement 2004”

Date: 23/09/2004-24/09/2004
Location: Vienna
Country: Austria

As the new regulations and procedures of REACH will affect not only the present member states but also a number of (by then) new member states, it is very important to identify the difficulties that may arise as well as the associated challenges.

It is also of great importance to know how the enlargement of the European Union will influence the intended system and vice versa.

The Conference will focus on and therefore facilitate:

  • The implementation of existing EU provisions in the area of chemicals policy.
  • The aims and procedures within the transitional period until the new EU chemicals Policy is in force.
  • The shaping of the capacities and structures necessary to ensure adequate implementation and enforcement of the existing and the future system.

The event is hosted by the European Commission in co-operation with the Austrian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry, Environment and Water Management and the Austrian Umweltbundesamt.
