New Issue 3/2018: The European Chemicals Agency’s Board of Appeal – Alternative Perspectives
As was the case with the first two editions of the International Chemical Regulatory and Law Review, Issue 3/2018 again includes qualitatively high contributions from people working across the field of international chemical regulation. With a special focus on the European Chemicals Agency’s Board of Appeal, one of the most important bodies in the field of chemical regulation, this issue will be of value to practitioners, academics and regulators alike.
Our esteemed Editorial Board member, and member of the ECHA Board of Appeal (BoA), Andrew Fasey reflects on both the challenges and rewards of holding such an important position and provides us with some fantastic insights into his 8 years on the ECHA Board of Appeal. To complement his contribution, our lead article by Eléonore Mullier and Ruxandra Cana outlines the difference between appealing a decision at the European Court of Justice and the ECHA BoA. The theme continues in our Reports section with a first-hand account of what it is like to make an appeal at the ECHA BoA.
With additional country reports on the latest developments in China, Turkey and the USA, ICRL 3/2018 continues the global perspective that have characterised the first two issues.

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
