REACH COMPLIANCE

MAIN OBJECTIVES OF THE REACH REGULATION

  • COLLECT DATA ON THE PROPERTIES AND USES OF THE SUBSTANCE (“NO DATA, NO MARKET”)
  • DEMONSTRATE USE AND SAFE MANAGEMENT IN THE ENTIRE LIFE CYCLE OF THE SUBSTANCE
  • COMMUNICATE SAFE USES THROUGHOUT THE SUPPLY CHAIN
  • FIND SUBSTITUTES/ALTERNATIVES FOR “HIGH CONCERN” SUBSTANCES

FUNDAMENTAL STEPS OF REACH

  • Registration: whoever produces/imports a substance in quantities exceeding 1 tonne per year is obligated to “register” it at the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) presenting a Technical Dossier.
  • Evaluation: the Competent Authorities of the Member States, under the coordination of the Agency, will evaluate the information provided by the Industry.
  • Possible Authorization and Restriction on the use of substances with particular properties that are dangerous to human health and/or the environment.
