This event will take place to provide you with an overview about the amended Act on Registration and Evaluation of Chemical Substances of Korea (also known as K-REACH), which was promulgated in March 2018 and already came into force on January 1, 2019. The Ministry of Environment of Korea will be also present to summarize the main changes of K-REACH. Also, you can get insight into Korea’s chemical industry and environment.

For over three decades, Belgium has been a key country to share their technical know-how with Korea and enjoy vast opportunities in the chemical industries. Successful partnerships with major Belgian companies including Solvay and UCB have contributed to the creation of innovative and sustainable business in the chemical sector, which is one of the key industries of Korea.  Surely you can either develop or even expand current business collaboration by learning Korean chemical business environment and its latest amended regulations.
