ANTICIPATE REGULATORY RISKS ON SUBSTANCES & DEFINE THE BEST STRATEGY TO CONTROL THEM
Chaired by Pascal FROU, former head of the REACH programme for SAFRAN, the Alliance aims to be an incubator for regulatory risk management strategies to help industrial users of chemical substances to sustain their activities.
Joining the Alliance allows manufacturers to benefit from forward-looking monitoring and to exchange best practices in the management of potentially hazardous substances.
It also enables manufacturers to form networks in order to organise specific joint actions, such as the analysis of the impact of the regulation of a substance on an entire supply chain, or the construction of an authorisation application for certain substances.
Through working groups focused on a specific substance and use, members benefit from EcoMundo's experience in regulatory risk prioritisation strategies and individualised support to optimise their REACH Authorisation, if necessary.
Participating in the Alliance is not a commitment to the creation of an Authorisation dossier but a strategic help to the reflection and, thus, to the decision-making regarding the different possible regulatory paths of the targeted substances.
" I accepted in 2019 to take the presidency of the REACH Authorisation Alliance initiated by EcoMundo, considering that it was a relevant answer to the complexity, for a downstream user of a given substance, to define a strategy towards REACH Authorisation adapted to its interests... See more >

THE OBJECTIVES OF THE ALLIANCE
The purpose of the R2A is to help industrial users of substances to identify their risks and manage them better, in particular through anticipatory monitoring and, if necessary, requests for authorisation.
BRINGING THE ACTORS TOGETHER
Understanding between all stakeholders is key. The R2A acts as a mediator so that industry can better understand the authorities' expectations regarding the management of chemicals. We ensure that industry is able to demonstrate effective management of the technical risks associated with the use of substances, depending on their hazard, and in particular to provide credible justifications for obtaining authorisations.
