SAVE THE DATE – 29 March - Nickel Institute webinar on ECHA draft Guidance on “articles in prolonged skin contact” - Nickel restriction (REACH)

Dear Colleagues,

The Nickel Institute (NI) will hold an online webinar on the ECHA draft Guidance on “articles in prolonged skin contact” in relation to the Nickel REACH restriction. The draft ECHA Guidance is open for comments until 19 April. As indicated in our previous communication (see attached e-mail), the matter is important as the draft ECHA Guidance and the list of articles may be relevant for your sector and value chain and the issue can have potential access to the market implications for the articles covered in the ECHA list.

The webinar will provide you with:

  • - Background information about nickel allergic contact dermatitis and the EU restriction on nickel release (REACH Annex XVII, Entry 27);
  • - An explanation of issues at stake and potential implications of the ECHA draft Guidance;
  • - Nickel Institute’s activities and position on the ECHA draft list of articles and proposed next steps.

The NI webinar will take place on:

  • - Date: Wednesday 29 March
  • - Time: 15:30 – 17:00 CET

Agenda and practical details on how to join the webinar will be circulated soon. In the meantime, please SAVE THE DATE in your diary. Do not hesitate to forward this information to your colleagues and let us know if we should add any contact to our distribution list for the event.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further clarification or information.
