Global REACH Regulatory Compliance

Overview

Overview

REACH regulations aim to protect human health and the environment through early identification of various risks posed by chemical substances. The term “REACH” stands for “Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals.”

Chemical manufacturers must ensure that the risk assessment of chemicals is performed appropriately. They also need to make sure that the risk management measures to protect human health and the environment are implemented in the right manner.

REACH regulations place the responsibility on the chemical industry to manage the risks posed by chemicals and provide safety information on the chemical substances. Manufacturers and importers are required to gather information on the properties of chemical substances to allow their safe handling, along with registering the required information in a central database of the target market.

Steps Involved in REACH Compliance:

  1. Registration: Chemicals above a certain tonnage band should be registered by providing the required data.
  2. Evaluation: The intrinsic hazardous property of the chemical should be evaluated.
  3. Authorization: Hazardous chemicals or substances of very high concern should get authorization for their intended use before being placed on the market.
  4. Restriction: Hazardous chemicals or chemical substances of very high concern should be restricted from certain uses.
