Importance of REACH


REACH is the EU regulation governing the manufacture and import of chemical substances. REACH is an acronym for the “registration, evaluation and authorization of chemicals”. It has been in force in all EU Member States since June 1, 2007. It also applies in Iceland, Lichtenstein, and Norway. REACH places responsibility on industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to provide safety information on substances. Manufacturers and importers are required to gather information on the properties of their chemical substances and to register that information in a central database in the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).
