Helping You Comply with REACH Regulations

For your products to be compliant, they must comply with REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006. LKC has the technical knowledge to help. We also carry out GLP and GEP study monitoring according to the OECD test guidelines for chemical safety.

Our project management service includes independent technical and regulatory opinion, including assessing your data dossiers to ensure accuracy, carrying out data gap analysis, risk assessments, and much more. We will tailor submissions to your requirements, leading to economic and scientific advantages as we assist you into the EU. We will either liaise with the regulators on your behalf or advise you on the successful process.


LKC’s services include:

  • IUCLID dossiers with robust study summaries, literature searches, Klimisch score assignment, DNEL and PNEC calculations, PBT and vPvB assessment, classification and labelling
  • Data gap analysis including testing proposals, technical expert statements, read-across potential, data waiver preparation and (Q)SAR approaches
  • Represent clients in SIEFs, Only Representative (OR) and support EU and non-EU manufacturers and importers
  • Conduct detailed risk assessments using EUSES, Chesar and ECOTOC TRA to evaluate the requirement for higher tier assessments or risk mitigation measures
