SIN meets Korean REACH implementation

In May ChemSec met with the Korea Institute of Science and Technology Europe, KIST, to discuss REACH implementation, high concern chemicals and the relevance of the SIN List to Korean companies. At a one-day event, hosted by KIST Europe, ChemSec met with representatives from Korean Industry, top management as well as research and engineering.

As Korean exporting industry is dominated by manufacturers of consumer goods, there is a natural focus on the handling of chemicals of high concern. Accordingly, participants were keen on learning about the SIN List, and how it can be used to increase knowledge about high concern chemicals, and how to prepare for potential regulation of these substances.

The aim of KIST Europe is to globalize Korea’s Science and Technology research efforts. KIST Europe was the first public Korean Research and Development institute constructed overseas, focusing on the field of environmental technology. Within the REACH context, KIST Europe is acting as a “REACH Only Representative” to Korean companies operating in the European Union.

As a next step, ChemSec and KIST Europe are discussing translating the SIN List into Korean. Komapsumnida!
