Virtual Learning



Master the scientific basis and the essential rules of crane design, in accordance with EN 13001 series of standards (with equivalent ISO standards)


Upon completion of the training, the trainees will be equipped with a good understanding of the following:

  • The main requirements of the REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization of CHEMICALS)
  • The responsibilities of the different stakeholders in the EU, namely producers, importers, distributors, users.
  • The responsibilities of companies outside the EU and understand their relationships in the implementation of REACH.
  • The challenges of REACH regulation in the EU and the implications of companies outside the EU.






In many European countries, environmental protection is an obligation for the company. Some of them may involve the supply chain, which is the case with Reach & RoHS, even if part of the supply chain is outside the European Union (herein called “EU”). This training is specially adapted for companies, based outside the EU, that export articles to the EU and have to comply with the REACH & ROHS regulations imposed by their customers.

Pedagogical Means:

Interactive Virtual Learning with “Classilio”. Alternating theory and practice, including case studies.

Who should attend:

Individuals and companies that export articles to the EU and have to comply with the REACH & ROHS regulations. Manufacturers, engineers, operations and supply chain management and executives for the EU market.
