Training from Denehurst

Training services

As well as participation in seminars and public training events, Denehurst provides in-house training to meet specific client requirements covering chemical supply legislation relating to REACH and CLP.  This can include help with specific laboratory testing, extended safety data sheets (eSDS), Chemical Safety Report preparation (CSR) and input of data into IUCLID 6

Mark and Gill are regular trainers for CHCS ( and REACHReady ( 


The charges for training support depend on the level of customisation.  For a full day in-house for any number of delegates, fees will start at typically €1400 (£ 1100) which will include provision of materials in electronic form.  Copyright is not claimed and recording permitted. Costs for fully customised one-off courses will reflect any supplementary preparation time. 

Follow-up advice and reporting back to the client are included as part of the basic costs – many in-house events will include a session on how the processes can be implemented and this will be part of the reporting.  


Mark and Gill are trainers with the UK Chemical Hazards Communication Society (CHCS), covering various standard training modules in CLP, Basic Ecotoxicity, Advanced Ecotoxicity and advanced SDS Writing. 

In addition, Mark and Gill have conducted in-house training work for a number of multi-national organisations and competent authorities at their locations in the UK, Asia, North America, South America and mainland Europe. 

Work in local schools is provided free of charge and the experience gained in schools, working with professional teachers, is invaluable when trying to control a group of badly behaved industry specialists.  Experience from IT training with 5 year olds helps when trying to explain IUCLID.  Marine ecology in rock-pools with 9 year old children is more fun than anything that involves REACH.

Basis of training

A key part of any consulting service is to help clients help themselves. As part of this, Denehurst offers direct training support covering a wide range of chemical supply legislation and laboratory services.  Key to any training offered is to help explain ‘why’ these topics are important – it is easy to read guidance and legal documents, but less easy to apply that knowledge in a way that meets the spirit of the Regulations.  We can help explain why certain parts of the legal requirement are as they are and once the context is understood, the related guidance will fit into place.

Examples of training courses provided by Mark Selby and Gill Pagliuca include:

Classification and labelling for supply (GHS and CLP)
Chemical Safety Reports (CSR)

Chesar software for writing CSR

European supply legislation for US suppliers
Exposure Scenarios

IUCLID and REACH IT (EU) / Comply with REACH (GB)
Physico-chemical testing
REACH registration, including Inquiries, PPORDs etc
REACH for non-EU / non-GB exporters
Safety Data Sheets
Toxicology for industry

Use of Waivers and alternative methods for chemical safety assessment

Specific guidance for some of these topics are provided on other pages of this site

These courses are typically one or two days and will include interactive practical assessment work.  Although on-line training can be provided, face-to-face is more satisfying.

Other short lectures and presentations at meetings and conferences are regularly given; if they are places we like to go to, these can be offered at ‘expenses only’ rates.
