ChemCon Europe 2022 - London

Partners of ChemCon Europe 2022:


ChemCon Europe 2022 took place in London, United Kingdom from 20 – 24 June 2022. More than 300 experts from 25 countries representing over 150 companies, authorities and associations attended the conference and contributed to an inspiring exchange of experiences and discussions about regulatory affairs around the globe.

The week had a great start where compliance driven companies learned about REACH (EU, UK, Turkey) registration IT Tools. Followed by in-depth seminars on “United Kingdom; UK REACH implementation aspects, food contact and cosmetics” and on “Data driven regulatory roadmap – approaches and directions”.

During the rest of the week a great variety of aspects of international chemical control legislation around the globe was discussed during the conference sessions. Hands on topics related to European regulatory strategy and implementation as well as American and Asian updates were of high relevance to the audience. As always practical advice and lessons learned by industry were well received, since they show how to act within the legal frameworks set.

Many countries from Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas were spotlighted in detail and furthermore there was a focus on topics like GHS, global notification, endocrine disruptors, microplastics, nanomaterials, ROHS and waste water. Also CBI requirements and experiences were shared.
