Inviting Applications for Presenter and Deputy to new CHCS Module: "Chemical Regulation, Asia-Pacific "

[ Download as a PDF ]

CHCS is introducing a new module to help Members comply with chemical legislation in the Asia-Pacific Region.

The Jurisdictions of Interest:

  • China; India; Japan; Malaysia; Philippines; South Korea; Taiwan; Thailand.

The module will be presented as a one or two day event, depending on the content to be covered, and will be scheduled according to demand. The first run of the module is expected to be delivered in autumn 2019.

The CHCS Modular training programme has been successfully operating for a number of years. The curriculum is designed to help Members comply with the requirements of key chemical legislation and understand core concepts.

A competitive fee is paid to Presenters of the modules and the Deputies supporting them. Reasonable expenses are also reimbursed in line with CHCS Policy.

Content of the Module

The aim of the Module is to provide delegates with enough information and resources to achieve a good understanding, and reasonable degree of competency, in the area of chemical registration/notification specific to the Countries of interest. Other significant chemical legislation should also be covered, along with the status of GHS, and additional national compliance requirements beyond the version of GHS adopted. The Module should include an appropriate number of practical exercises to consolidate the learning experience.

The following should be incorporated for each Country covered:

  • the main titles of the legislation and the Agencies responsible;
  • who the legislation applies to, and how it impacts overseas suppliers;
  • the scope of the legislation and exemptions;
  • how notification/registration is conducted and the fees involved;
  • information requirements, tonnage bands (if relevant), reduced notification/registration options and testing requirements;
  • joint notification/registration if applicable;
  • main Sources of Guidance;
  • main differences with EU REACH;
  • other significant chemical legislation and how this impacts overseas suppliers.

Information on the status of GHS should be incorporated, identifying the main differences to EU CLP, but referencing the UN GHS version, the building blocks adopted and any additional requirements. The additional label requirements in China will be of particular interest to delegates undertaking this Module.

How to apply

Presenters: If you are interested in delivering this Module, please submit your CV, a covering letter including relevant experience and an outline of the Module content, including timings for the event.

A fee of £945 for writing a satisfactory one day module, and £1890 for a two day module will be paid to the successful candidate. The fee will include the transfer of the intellectual property of the Module to CHCS CLG.

Deputies: To apply to be the Deputy of this Module, please submit your CV and a covering letter including relevant experience.

The Deputy will be expected to deliver the module, in the unlikely event that the presenter is unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances. The Deputy must therefore possess the necessary knowledge and skills to undertake the role. Deputies are also expected to assist the Presenter with practical exercises, and in consolidating the learning experience. They are not expected to present the module, outside of the Presenter being unexpectedly unavailable.

All CHCS Modules are delivered in English. Applicants must therefore have a good command of the English language.

Applications should be emailed to for review by the CHCS Training Panel. All personal information provided will be handled in accordance with GDPR requirements.
