About REACH
REACH is a new European Community Regulation with far-REACHing consequences for the chemical industry. Not only the manufacturers, but also the users and formulators, importers and distributors of chemical products will be affected by the legislation.
With REACH, the European Community intends to enforce the safe handling of chemicals, and to protect the environment. It aims to achieve this by having a risk evaluation carried out on all chemicals that are brought onto the European market, by specifying appropriate risk management measures and, where necessary, by restricting the use of hazardous chemicals.

REACH is an acronym of:
Registration,
Evaluation,
Authorisation and restriction of
CHemicals
