The biocidal products regulation (BPR), EU Regulation 528/2012, is a complex legislation and the path to compliance is often unclear. Even just determining what steps you need to undertake to get your product on the market can require expert consultancy. Enviresearch would like to help overcome some of the challenges by offering one hour of free consultancy with our biocides team.
In this hour you can ask all the questions you wish, regarding the BPR and national legislation relating to biocides. We aim to enable you to have a clear idea of your obligations and measures needed to undertake to ensure your biocidal product security.
Enviresearch is delighted to announce that Alice Tagliati has joined the team as a Risk Assessor. Alice will be focusing on assessing the fate and effects of chemicals in the environment, in line with the current EU and national guidelines.
Alice is a passionate, pro-active and highly motivated environmental toxicologist with a background in understanding the combined effects of chemical (pollution) and physical (e.g. those associated with global climate change) stressors. She has specific expertise in the development of standardised toxicity bioassays, markers and risk assessment procedures to evaluate ecological effects of contamination issues in tropical marine environments.
With a Brexit deal all but confirmed, and the negotiations on the future UK/EU trading relationship expected to last until the December 2020 deadline, attention is now turned towards ECHA’s plans to focus on REACH compliance checks during 2020. This means companies need to make sure they are fulfilling their REACH responsibilities and are prepared for possible audits.
The UK looks set to leave the EU on January 31st, initiating a transition period. This transition period is the time for negotiation of the UK’s future trading relationship with the EU and will steer the UK’s future participation in REACH. The transition period has a deadline of December 31st 2020, meaning the REACH focus for 2020 can be shifted for now, and falls mostly on ECHA’s continued scrutiny of REACH registration dossiers.
