The REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals) regulation is an EU chemicals regulation for the reform of European chemicals legislation, which came into effect on 1 June 2007. REACH entails a fundamental standardisation and simplification of previous chemicals legislation.
The aim is to increase knowledge regarding the hazards and risks associated with chemicals, whereby companies have to assume greater responsibility for handling their products safely. The REACH system is based on the principle of individual responsibility in industry. Chemicals are to be manufactured and used in such way so as to prevent negative effects on humans and the environment.
