Although it has been 10 years since the ground breaking EU REACH regulation came into force and fundamentally changed the way chemical substances are regulated, evaluated and authorised, this dynamic and ever changing policy area merits continuous scrutiny and analysis.
To provide a forum which will enable practitioners, regulators, policy makers and academics to discuss the most pressing issues in this field – in Europe and beyond – Lexxion has created the International Chemical Regulatory Law Review (ICRL).
Chemical law experts will report on key regulatory and legislative developments, not just in regard to EU REACH but also across the globe, and will analyse important processes that shape the interpretation and application of chemical regulation. Those relating to the international progress of chemicals registration, authorisation and restriction and the improvement of human health and environmental protection will be receive particular attention.
Aims & Scope
The quarterly journal addresses everyone who is concerned with EU REACH, chemical law and policy issues such as legal practitioners in national and international law firms offering their services to businesses in the EU and globally, government officials working in public administrations and other relevant policy-making and enforcement bodies, academics (in the field of law, biology, biochemists, chemists and pharmacists and other relevant research fields), legal experts and judges in domestic, European and international courts as well as consultancies and business professionals.
ICRL reports on, inter alia:
- Chemical law (regional, national, international);
- Chemical regulation
- The ECHA Board of Appeal
- EU REACH
- Commission decisions (ECHA opinions);
- European and global Jurisprudence;
- Regulation on crop protection;
- Biocide law;
- Transport law for hazardous materials;
- Chemical registration
All articles will be subject to double blind peer-review before acceptance for publication and are required to conform to the author guidelines available.
ICRL’s Target Audience
The quarterly journal addresses everyone who is concerned with chemical law and policy issues. Academics in the field of chemical law, biologists, biochemists, chemists and pharmacists may be particularly interested, while Government officials, as well as regulatory experts, working in public administrations and other relevant policy-making and enforcement bodies, will also find ICRL to be highly relevant to their work.
ICRL will comprise of on in-depth lead articles as well as more concise reports on recent regulatory and legislative developments in the field.
