wca offers a comprehensive range of product registration and regulatory compliance services for chemicals. Our team has extensive experience with regulatory frameworks for chemical management and established relationships with regulatory authorities at national and international level. We successfully guide clients through the complete regulatory life-cycle for chemicals under the following regimes:

REACH Regulation

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of CHemicals), is the European Union programme for the regulation of both new and existing chemical substances on the European market.

The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020, and is currently in a transition period. During the transition period, UK-based companies must continue to comply with EU chemicals regulations, but following the end of the transition period (currently expected to be 31 December 2020), a new UK REACH will come into force.

Regulatory advice and training

At wca, we understand that REACH, and chemical and environmental legislation more widely, is a complex topic. Many companies do not have the internal expertise or resource to stay up to date with all of the developments. As well as our bespoke solutions, such as call off contracts allowing companies to ask regulatory questions of relevance to their company, wca can provide up to date training on REACH, CLP and other topics.

Biocidal Products Regulation

The Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR, Regulation (EU) 528/2012) provides a regulatory framework for biocidal products placed on the European Union market.
