Substitution Workshop Report

14 December 2004

The Royal Society of Chemistry held a one-day workshop to explore how chemical substitution could work in practice within the context of the proposed REACH Regulation. In order to get an overview of the issues of concern in relation to substitution and how some of these could be resolved, participants were drawn from a wide range of organisations including Government, Industry and NGO's. The meeting at the Royal Society of Chemistry was opened by the Minister of State for Rural Affairs and Local Environmental Quality the Rt. Hon Alun Michael MP. Professor David Taylor chaired the meeting and presented the keynote address. Every effort has been made by the RSC to summarise the range of views expressed by workshop participants without bias, thus the report cannot be represented as the opinion of any particular stakeholder.
