BLC Welcomes Connell Laurance to the Chemical Testing Team

BLC are delighted to announce a new addition to our Chemical Testing Team, Connell Laurance.

Connell has joined BLC as a Chemical and Regulatory Advisor and will be supporting customers and BLC Members with chemical testing and compliance.

A significant portion of Connell’s role will be advising customers on the chemical restrictions and requirements associated with REACH, as well as BLC REACH testing services. REACH is a piece of European product safety legislation that applies to all products retailed in the European Union. REACH legislation is applicable throughout the supply chain, therefore retailers, manufacturers, distributors and importers of goods into the European Union must comply.

“I am looking forward to getting stuck-in to various chemical regulations that govern the manufacture and retail of everyday products and I hope to be able to make a great contribution towards the technical support BLC offers to its customers.” – Connell Laurance

Connell studied chemistry at Aston University then went on to work for a firm to develop a novel method of sustainable leather retanning both in the laboratory and in the field.

Outside of BLC, Connell’s hobbies include reading fiction, keeping active and art.
