Issue 2/2019 – The Priorities of ECHA and Global Developments

As ICRL’s goal is to bring together the most important stakeholders in the chemicals industry we are very pleased to have Issue 2/2019 begin with a fascinating Foreword by ECHA Executive Director, Björn Hansen. Analysing to the most significant trends in the sector, Mr Hansen discusses the importance of REACH, cross-legislative and cross-agency interfaces and the ongoing discussion of the circular economy.

The lead article of this issue addresses the authorisation scheme for biocidal products in Switzerland. Although the Swiss Ordinance on Biocidal Products is technically equivalent to the EU Biodical Products Regulation, some compliance challenges remain. In their first contribution to ICRL, Maren Rectanus and Doris Peters delve into global data sharing and how it is impacted by the international regulatory environment.
