REACH Compliance help and advice

What is REACH?

REACH is the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals Regulation (EC 1907/2006) and it came into force in July 2007.

The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH:

  • 31 May 2013 is the deadline for companies to register all phase-in substances manufactured or imported in the EU at or above 100 tonnes a year.
  • 31 May 2018 is the deadline for 1 tonne and over.

The REACH legislation is available from the ECHA website.
