New to REACH? check out the UK Chemical Stakeholder Forum Guidance


The Chemical Regulations Self Help Group has been set up by a group of chemical companies in the UK, originally to help understand the impact of the REACH and CLP regulations on UK chemical companies. We are a discussion group based on peer learning and support. 



We meet four times a year to discuss how to comply with REACH, CLP and other chemical regulations in a confidential, friendly atmosphere.


There are chemical companies of all sizes in the group, from micro-SMEs up to multi-nationals.  Members include manufacturers, formulators, importers, exporters and distributors.


As of 2017, we have around 50 industry members, mainly SMEs, and a further dozen consultants and service providers who give expert advice.


As an invitation-only group, we ensure that membership is generally for companies active in the chemicals supply chain. 


Membership is flexible: companies can choose to attend meetings, or just receive the meeting notes. All levels of members have access to the "members area" of the website containing the group's knowledgebase.  Attending your first meeting is free for prospective members.

Meetings venue 

Halifax Bradley Hall Golf Club is located near Junction 24 of the M62, at Holywell Green, Halifax HX4 9AN.

The Chemical Regulations Self Help Group helps members handle chemicals safely and legally


It’s very good access to a lot of clever people and a lot of support, well worth the money!  I’m sure there are other companies who would have had to pay a fortune in consultant fees to get where we are today without the help of the group.
