Conference Schedule

Jana Trávníčková

Session #1: Notification of SVHCs to ECHA SCIP database: hands-on training

Hands-on training with Jana Trávníčková (Regulatory Queen at Regartis s.r.o.) & Jan Holomek (Managing Director at Regartis s.r.o.) Jana and Jan will show you step by step how SVHCs in articles can be notified to ECHA's newly created SCIP database. If you are buying or selling products containing SVHCs, you're gonna need to deal with this. Starting from January 2021 already.

After going through real-life examples how to notify SVHCs to the SCIP database and collecting your training certificate, you are more than welcome to join the rest of the PCMC2020 participants at a complimentary lunch before jumping to the conference and Regulatory ConverStations.

Session #2: Notification of chemicals to poison centres and UFIs: hands-on training

Masterclass with Tomáš Novotný (Customer Happiness Manager and Director at Regartis s.r.o.) & Jana Eliášová & Dragana Bašić (Regulatory Queens at Regartis s.r.o.) Tomáš, Jana and Dragana will walk you through the process of notifying hazardous chemicals to poison centres and show you in real-time how it is done and point out any workability issues you might be facing with PCN notifications. And you will get clear messages on the best practices in managing UFI codes and placing them on labels. You will get a skill you will use many times in day-to-day practice thanks to new obligations set by CLP Annex VIII being in force from January 2021.

We will be going through practical examples and after getting your training certificate, we can all enjoy a bit of rest at a complimentary lunch before jumping to the PCMC 2020 conference and Regulatory ConverStations.

Panel Q&A

TBA

Converstation 1: REACH dossier update

Is your REACH registration dossier up to date? According to the REACH regulation, the registration dossier should reflect the most current knowledge on your substance. ECHA carefully examines registrations to make sure that they are compliant. These compliance checks can be either random or concern based. Do not wait - be proactive! Learn about your obligations now and comply with the requirements! During our conference, we will guide you through your obligations on keeping your registration dossier up to date and compliant and describe some model situations when you need to update your dossier. It will be especially useful for you, if you are preparing for the update, or if your dossier has already failed completeness check and you need to submit an update – you will have a chance to exchange experience with registrants who already went through this process.

ConverStation 2: Biocides

Biocidal products commonly used in medicine, agriculture, forestry, and industry. These products are intended to control organisms which are harmful to human or animal health or damage natural or manufactured materials. Also, biocidal products can pose risks to the environment, human and animals. Did you know that even a pocket hand sanitizer you are buying, might be in the scope of BPR? During the pandemic, there is an increased demand for different types of biocidal products – we all need surface disinfectants, veterinary and human hygiene products, and many other types of disinfection. How to comply with EU BPR requirements? What internal requirements EU Member States have? How long does it take? How much does it cost? In PCMC 2020 you will learn about the Biocidal Products Regulation 528/2012 (BPR), and found out, how widely biocides are used, how to make your biocidal products available on the market and what risk management can be applied to protect our health and environment.

ConverStation 3: Green deal future strategy for chemical management. Circular economy

On 29 January 2020, the European Commission's new work programme was published. Under the first priority – 'A European Green Deal' – the Commission announced its intention to launch a chemicals strategy for sustainability. This strategy aims to reduce the risks associated with producing and using chemicals. It will simplify and strengthen EU rules on chemicals, and review how EU agencies and scientific bodies can work together towards a process where substances are only reviewed by one agency. AT the table we will discuss the impacts on the industry that might apply once the new work program will be implemented.

Is there anything else you would like to ask within the Regulatory world? Anything can be discussed at this table!    

ConverStations: Experience-sharing round tables facilitated by Mia Forbes Pirie

How it works: ConverStations are what makes PCMC unique. An interactive format highly appreciated by the participants where you can be part of a round table discussion in a small group of 6-8 experts with various background - from authorities over consultants to the industry. During the ConverStations, you will be able to discuss all the topics, each one with the right experts.    

Networking Cruise with complimentary buffet dinner

Once the afternoon sessions on various regulatory topics are over, we will set sail on the 74m-long Grand Bohemia boat together, to enjoy magnificent sights of evening Prague and carry on with informal discussions over a delicious buffet dinner. Let’s navigate together towards compliance!
