What is the REACH regulation?
The REACH Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is a European Union regulation that was adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks posed by chemical substances and mixtures.
Who is affected by the REACH regulation?
It affects the entire European chemical industry and all participants in the supply chain, whether manufacturers, importers, distributors, downstream users, etc.
REACH applies to all chemicals, not only those used in industrial processes, but also in products used in everyday life, such as cleaning products, paints and other articles such as clothing, furniture and electrical appliances. Substances such as radioactive substances, waste, transport of hazardous substances, chemicals used in foodstuffs and medicines, among others, are totally excluded from the Regulation.
European companies that market and distribute chemical products must follow certain obligations, such as REACH registration, communication in the supply chain, authorisation or restriction of substances, among other obligations.
