The REACh Regulation

"Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals"

The REACh (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) chemicals regulation entered into force on 1 June 2007. It replaced a range of different EU directives relating to the evaluation and categorisation of secondary raw materials within the EU.

The objective of the REACh Regulation is ensuring a high level of protection for human health and the environment as well as improving the competitiveness and power to innovate of the chemical industry within the EU.

This Regulation obliges the industry to verify the safety of all chemicals used. Since 1 December 2008 only registered substances may be manufactured and marketed within the EU. A period totalling eleven years has been specified for registering the roughly 30,000 chemical substances affected throughout the EU, divided into three phases according to the tonnage manufactured or imported per annum.

No Data - No Market

The higher the quantity, the greater the information requirement about the substance in question. The substances must be assessed in terms of their risk potential as part of chemical safety reports, based on data submitted.

You as a user will be informed about the resultant safe handling information in the form of a safety data sheet.
