Reach information

On the 13th December 2006 the European Parliament gave green light to the new REACH regulation on chemical substances.

REACH , acronym for the words Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals, was presented by the European Commission on October 2003 in order to replace more than forty legislative texts.

The new regulation came into force the 1st June 2007 with the purpose of simplifying and improving the previous legislative framework concerning chemical substances in the EU. The aim of REACH is to improve public health and the environment through a better and earlier identification of the properties inherited to chemical substances.

With REACH the industry will acquire now the highest responsibility to manage the risks that those substances may create in relation to health and environment. Manufacturers and importers will be obliged to identify and deal with those risks related to the produced substances and their markets. For substances produced or imported in one or more tons per year by each individual or legal entity , either manufacturers or importers will have to prove that it has been done adequately through the registration dossier which will have to be presented to the ECHA in Helsinki.

The Regulation foresees also the progressive replacement of the most hazardous chemical substances when proper alternatives have been identified.
