ECHA has its 30th birthday in 1987 and 1988. It was on 29th May 1987, when ECHA was founded in Utrecht and 10 November 1988 when the first ECHA Conference started in Zürich. The General Committee decided to celebrate the 30th birthday by collecting information on all International ECHA Conferences and by publishing them on the ECHA website. Please send your photos, or any other electronic document you have on former ECHA Conferences to Ragnild Zonneveld, the vice-president of the ECHA association in the Netherlands at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Ragnild will be helped in her work by our ECHA General Committee member, Lianne Hoogeveen, who keeps the ECHA archives. They will also lead the efforts to make a short history of ECHA training. (When sending your contribution in the subject line please mention the conference or training -- place and time -- the material or text relates to.) Great thanks for your help!
