*NEW* – Korea Chemical Control Regulations

This half-day online course is designed to provide attendees with a comprehensive view of the chemical regulations in Korea.  The new chemical regulation, the Act on the Registration and Evaluation of Chemicals (K-REACH), and its impacts on current chemicals regulations will be reviewed.  Other related regulations such as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) requirements will also be covered during the course.  Korea implemented GHS and has been legally enforcing GHS regulations since July 2010 for single substances and July 2013 for mixtures of two or more substances.

Students will learn about detailed registration requirements of current and new chemical regulations and how K-REACH will affect them in their chemical registrations for chemical substances and products containing chemicals.
