New Issue 4/2018 - Contribution From Across The Globe
Wrapping up the first year of ICRL, Issue 4/2018 features contributions from across the globe on the most pressing issues in the field of International Chemical Regulation. As the Brexit negotiations come to a close and the United Kingdom slides deeper into political turmoil, our lead Article explores the impact of Brexit on the regulation of biocides, both in the EU and in the UK. With a focus on the consequences of both a hard Brexit and a soft Brexit, Hannah Widemann, Eléonore Mullier and Darren Abrahams offer practical and sensible advice to any business working in this area. The final issue of the year also has a strong focus on regulatory developments in North America with reports on recent changes to the US TSCA, an overview of California’s Proposition 65 Law and an analysis of Canada’s regulation of cleaning products.

The reports section is rounded off with a look at the regulation of chemicals in Taiwan.

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.

ICRL’s Target Audience
