Merry Christmas

“The Times They Are A-Changin” (Bob Dylan)

At the end of 2017 we look back: On our 25th Anniversary Workshop in June – many thanks to
all of you, who celebrated together with us in Oberbergen – and on many exiting projects, e.g.
REACH registration and authorisation works, harmonised classification and labelling proposals,
assessment of rubber crumb in artificial turf, and the impact assessment on the Carcinogens and
Mutagens Directive 2004/37/EC, just to mention some.
2018 will bring an important change: Fritz Kalberlah, the founder of FoBiG, and Martin Hassauer
will retire and leave the company and the next generation will step in: Ulrike Schuhmacher-
Wolz, Karin Heine, Markus Schwarz and Eva Kaiser will become company partners. This is reason
enough to freeze that moment in a picture. So, no brainteaser this year, but possibly again
in 2018?
We wish you a well-deserved break, a relaxing Christmas holiday and a Happy New Year!
