Join us at the Chamber on Tuesday the 8th of February at 16:00 CET for an exciting online webinar on the "EU REACH Restriction Roadmap" with Mr Harrie Temmink, Deputy Head of Unit for REACH at the Commission's Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG GROW). This event is kindly sponsored by SEC Newgate.

REACH is the European Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals, and it is one of the EU's cornerstone legislative policies regarding the use of chemicals. The principal aim of the REACH restriction is to protect both human health and the environment, as well as trying to incentivise more competitiveness within the Internal Market and greater innovation. With this in mind, the Commission aims to move further towards a cleaner and greener production and use of chemicals within the EU.

As the Commission prepares to open up to a public consultation on the REACH Restriction Roadmap, we welcome Mr Harrie Temmink, who has been in charge of the restriction roadmap, to speak to us on this subject. Mr Temmink has worked at the European Commission in several capacities since 2003, starting his current role last year in 2021. Previously he was a lecturer in Public Economic Law at the University of Utrecht; an advisor at the Netherlands Competition Authority and a Legal Secretary to the Court of Justice of the European Union.

This interesting event will take the form of a short presentation by Mr Temmink on the roadmap, followed by a moderated Q&A session, where attendees will have the opportunity to put their questions to the speaker. The event is free for all members to attend, and non-members of the Chamber can also attend for a fee of €75.

We look forward to welcoming you to this exciting event!
