Network of REACH SEA and Analysis of Alternatives practitioners (NeRSAP)

NeRSAP has been set up to exchange on advances and review of concepts, methods and experiences focussed on practical concepts for Socio-economic Analysis (SEA) and Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) on EU-wide or national chemicals management implementation. It is set up in collaboration between ECHA, Member States and stakeholders from industry and NGOs.

Given REACH SEAs and AoAs are in general prepared by SEA and AoA practitioners for their clients being it industry, Member State authorities, ECHA, the Commission, or others, the NeRSAP network welcomes practitioners with regulatory, academic or consultancy background with demonstrated experience in the field of REACH and/or EU or national chemicals legislation.


Who should attend?

Any SEA and AoA practitioner who have built/demonstrated practical experience in developing cases, concepts and methodologies to anticipate/implement obligations related to REACH Authorisation and Restriction cases or other EU or national chemicals management requirements.

Existing platform members can register for the meetings while interested new network members can forward an application to the organising Committee by sending a mail describing interest level, experience and potential presentation/contribution to SEA-AofANetwork [at]
