REACH Compliance :
REACH (19/07/2006)
Registration, Evaluation Authorisation & Restriction of Chemicals (REACH)

What is REACH ?

REACH is a new European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals. It came into force on 1st June 2007 and replaces a number of European Directives and Regulations with a single system.


Aims :
  • REACH has several aims :
    • To provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.
    • To make the people who place chemicals on the market (manufacturers and importers responsible for understanding and managing the risks associated with their use.)
    • To allow the free movement of substances on the EU market.
    • To enhance innovation in and the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
    • To promote the use of alternative methods for the assessment of the hazardous properties of substances i.e. QSAR and read across.

Scope and Exemptions :

REACH applies to substances manufactured or imported into the EU in quantities of 1 tonne per year or more. Generally, it applies to all individual chemical substances on their own, in preparations or in articles (if the substance is intended to be released during normal and reasonably foreseeable conditions of use from an article).


Some substances are specifically excluded :
  • Radioactive substances
  • Substances under customs supervision
  • The transport of substances
  • Non-isolated intermediates
  • Waste
  • Some naturally occurring low-hazard substances

Some substances, covered by more specific legislation, have tailored provisions, including :
  • Human and veterinary medicines
  • Food and foodstuff additives
  • Plant protection products and biocides

Other substances have tailored provisions within the REACH legislation, as long they are used in specified conditions
  • Isolated intermediates
  • Substances used for research and development
