REACH is the EC Regulation No. 1907/2006 concerning the “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals"

With this new EC regulation, which went into force on June 1, 2007, new obligations were imposed on companies.

The main objective of the regulation is the protection of people and the environment through the most comprehensive possible identification of risks posed by chemical substances.

To this end, the regulation foresees that in future, only chemical substances - including those in products - that have previously been registered or reported to the European Chemicals Agency based on specified conditions, can be transported into the EU.
