Second Issue 2/2018: ICRL - International Chemical Regulatory and Law Review

In the early stages of ICRL’s inception, we spoke to a wide range of stakeholders in the field of international chemical regulation and asked them what they would like to see in a new journal. The answer we got was clear: it should be international in scope, in-depth, and ought include all relevant voices. A brief glance over the contents page of ICRL Issue 2/2018 will reveal that we have paid attention. Featuring contributions from regulators, practitioners and consultants, the current issue provides space for all major stakeholder groups to be heard. With articles on the EU – Swiss regulatory relationship and on biocidal product regulation, Issue 2 is also topically diverse. Reports on policy developments in South Korea and the United States add an international flavour. Finally, the issue concludes with an in-depth case note on the recent (PPG) and SNF SAS vs ECHA decision.

International Chemical Regulatory and Law Review

Although it has been 10 years since the ground breaking REACH regulation came into force and fundamentally changed the way chemical substances are regulated, evaluated and authorised, this dynamic and ever changing policy area merits continuous scrutiny and analysis, including in Europe, Asia and North America.

To provide a forum which will enable practitioners, regulators, policy makers and academics to discuss the most pressing issues in this field – in Europe and beyond – Lexxion has created the International Chemical Regulatory Law Review (ICRL).

Chemical law experts report on key regulatory and legislative developments in the EU and worldwide and will analyse important processes that shape the interpretation and application of chemical regulation, in particular those of the improvement on protection levels of human health and the environment, international progress of substances’ registration, authorisation and restriction.

ICRL report on the regulation, law & policy governing, inter alia:

  • chemical law and regulation (regional, national, international);
  • Commission decisions (ECHA opinions);
  • European and global Jurisprudence;
  • regulation on crop protection;
  • biocide law;
  • transport law for hazardous materials;
  • patents/Trademarks;
  • licences;
  • chemical registration.

All contributions will be subject to double blind peer-review before acceptance for publication and are required to conform to the author guidelines.
