First Appeal Filed with ECHA Board of Appeal Results in Rectification of ECHA Decision

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

On September 16, 2009, Field Fisher Waterhouse (FFW), with and relying on the advice and assistance of The Acta Group EU, Ltd (Acta EU), an affiliate of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., submitted the first appeal against a decision of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA or the Agency) with the ECHA Board of Appeal, on behalf of the registrant.

On the basis of this submission, on October 14, 2009, the Executive Director of ECHA rectified the contested decision pursuant to Article 93(1) of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation.  By securing the rectification, FFW and Acta EU were successful in appealing a decision of the Agency, and did so in a timely and cost efficient manner for the client.
