PROJECT ChemFed/ChemLeg-2

Polish Chamber of Chemical Industry was the major institution in Poland responsible for the project's implementation. European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC), Brussels, Belgium, was the main coordinating organization of the whole project implemented in the Region of Central and East European Countries (CEEC). In Poland project was realised according to the agreement signed between Representatives of CEFIC and PIPC. The main source of financing was PHARE Business Support Programme Fund. Except PIPC, the chemical industry federations participated in this project from the following CEEC countries: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Romania (this latter in limited range).
The overall objective of the project Preparation of the CEEC chemical industry for the enlargement of the Internal Market through improving its compliance with EU environmental and social "acquis" was to provide support to CEEC Chemical Industry Federations to take up the Community chemicals, environmental and social "acquis" and support its implementation in their member companies, including best practice implemented by European chemical industry.
Familiarization of CEEC Federations with the relevant Community "acquis" was divided into 5 clusters:

  • Chemicals Legislation (including first of all Proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), establishing a European Chemicals Agency and amending Directive 1999/45/EC and Regulation (EC) {on Persistent Organic Pollutants});

  • Protection of Human Health and the Environment (including first of all Council Directive 96/61/EC concerning integrated pollution prevention and control - so called IPPC Directive);

  • Chemical Transport (including implementation of the SQUAS system (Safety and Quality Assessment Systems for the Transport/Storage/Handling of Chemicals);

  • Social Policy and Employment in cooperation with European Chemical Employers' Group (ECEG);

  • Economic statistics and benchmarking.

The tasks associated with chemicals legislation (REACH System) and IPPC Directive implementation - were coordinated by Andrzej Krześlak, M. Sc., Chem. Eng. (ICRI). Simultaneously the Industrial Chemistry Research Institute (ICRI) benefited from the project results as the PIPC member company.
Project was launched in May 2003 and was terminated successfully on 30 April 2005.


Analytical project (ILC scheme) entitled: "The international interlaboratory comparison (ILC) on the determination of trace elements in two candidate reference materials: Corn Flour (INCT-CF-3) and Soya Bean Flour (INCT-SBF-4).
The project provider: Department of Analytical Chemistry, Institute of Nuclear Chemistry and Technology, Warszawa, Poland. Co-ordinator: Dr. H. Polkowska-Motrenko.
The project was covering analysis of the above mentioned materials (INCT-CF-3, INCT-SBF-4) , and additionally of the Reference Material of biological origin, on the content of 50 elements.
The aim of the project: to assign certified and information values for both tested materials - intended to be INCT-CF-3 and INCT-SBF-4 certified reference materials.
The Project realization: October 2003 - December 2006.
Participants: 90 laboratories from 19 countries.
Person responsible for the ICRI share: Mrs. Dorota Kolasa M.Sc. Realization of the project was financed at ICRI. within own works of Analytical Services and Expertises Department.


Analytical project (PT scheme) entitled: QuaNAS Proficiency Testing Scheme 'Trace Metals in Urban Dust' organised within European GROWTH Project G7RT-CT-2002-05110, Project No. GTC1-200273003, acronym QuaNAS (EU project "Improving the Infrastructure for Metrology in Chemistry in the Candidate New Member States").
The project provider: Dr Kees J.M. Kramer, MERMAYDE, Bergen, Netherlands.
The main purpose of the project: to create an extensive forum for the improvement of the infrastructure for metrology in chemistry in the New Associated States (NAS) by a transfer of knowledge between the EU and the NAS countries.
The PT project involves analysis of urban dust sample on the content of the following trace elements: As, Cd, Cr, Cu, Hg, Ni, Pb and Zn to assign reference values for each element.
The Project realization: March 2005 - December 2006.
Participants: 78 laboratories from 12 countries (17 laboratories from Poland).Realization of the project was financed at ICRI. within own works of Analytical Services and Expertises Department. ICRI participants: Prof. Zbigniew Dobkowski, D.Sc., Chem.Eng. and Mrs. Dorota Kolasa, M.Sc.
