The REACH Regulation involves a fundamental reshaping of the former EC legislative framework for chemical substances. The Chemetall Group is working intensively on implementing the obligations resulting from the REACH and CLP regulations.
REACH is the acronym for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of CHemicals. The REACH Regulation EC No.1907/2006 has been in force since June 1, 2007 and involves a fundamental reshaping of the former EC legislative framework for chemical substances. The former system is replaced by a new law on chemicals that covers all substances whether manufactured, imported, used or placed on the market, either on their own, in preparations or in articles.
