Chemicals are an essential component in industrial practices. In Great Britain, the UK Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (UK REACH) and the Classification, Labelling and Packaging (GB CLP) govern the use of chemicals. Failure to adhere to these regulations can be dangerous to human health and the environment. This course provides an overview of the regulations, defines the roles and responsibilities of various stakeholders, and discusses the impact on downstream users. This course was developed with subject matter support provided by New Level Safety Limited, a professional services company specializing in corporate health and safety management. Please note, the course materials and content were current with the laws and regulations at the time of the last expert review, however, they may not reflect the most current legal developments.
