The company undertakes due diligence to ensure that all products we sell are REACH compliant.
REACH is a European Union regulation concerning the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals. It came into force on 1st June 2007 and replaced a number of European directives and regulations with a single system.
REACH has several aims:
- To provide a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals.
- To make the people who place chemicals on the market (manufacturers and importers) responsible for understanding and managing the risks associated with their use.
- To allow the free movement of substances on the EU market.
- To enhance innovation in and the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
- To promote the use of alternative methods for the assessment of the hazardous properties of substances e.g. quantitative structure-activity relationships (QSAR) and read across.
REACH applies to substances manufactured or imported into the EU in quantities of 1 tonne or more per year. Registrants must identify appropriate risk management measures and communicate them to users.
Some substances are specifically excluded:
- Radioactive substances
- Substances under customs supervision
- The transport of substances
- Non–isolated intermediates
- Some naturally occurring low-hazard substances
Some substances, covered by more specific legislation, have tailored provisions, including:
- Human and veterinary medicines
- Food and foodstuff additives
- Plant protection products and biocides
Other substances have tailored provisions within the REACH legislation, as long they are used in specified conditions:
- Isolated intermediates
- Substances used for research and development
