REACH For The Metals Industry Forum

Radisson Blu Vanderbilt Hotel
March 22 2017

Special early-bird of £300 plus VAT per person for all bookings made before January 18 2017.

We are delighted to announce that Metal Events is holding its REACH For The Metals Industry Forum in London on Wednesday 22 March 2017.

This one-day forum will tackle any last-minute questions you and your team may have as the deadline for REACH registration deadline is fast approaching.

  • Are you ready for May 2018?

  • What is the REACH road-map for 2018 and are you on it?

  • What actions do you need to prepare by the deadline?

  • How does the 2018 deadline apply to your company and what are the implications?

  • How will BREXIT impact your business?

  • What are the options for sole/small traders?

  • Orphan substances – how will this affect you? How do you get prepared?

  • What if raw materials disappear from the EU market? Do companies have replacements ready?

  • What do companies do if they want to start manufacturing/importing a substance in the EEA for the first time after May 2018?

  • Downstream users: who qualifies as a downstream user under REACH and what are their responsibilities and how REACH will affect them?

Our expert presenters will be able to answer these and any other questions you may have during the interactive panel sessions.

We will shortly be announcing the full line-up at this event so please keep an eye on

Our special early-bird fee of £300 (plus VAT) offers exceptional value for money and includes all conference sessions, copies of the presentations, tea/coffee breaks and luncheon.
