REACH

What is REACH?

REACH is an EU regulation that stipulates that chemical substances with annual production or import quantities of at least one metric ton must be tested for their effects on health and the environment, and must also be registered. The regulation also applies to those substances that are already on the European market. According to the EU Commission, a total of some 30,000 substances are subject to registration, with another roughly 400 new substances being added each year.

REACH's objective is to measure the risk factor of chemicals and consequently to improve the protection of human health and the environment. This decree is intended to improve the European industry's competitive ability and ensure the free trade of substances within the European Union. REACH is also expected to increase transparency in complex evaluation procedures and lead to swifter and more efficient evaluation of the chemicals.
