REACH-Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals
The regulations on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) are issued by the EU. REACH requires all EU-based manufacturers and importers of chemicals to register chemicals that are manufactured or imported in yearly tonnages exceeding a certain level: 1000, 100, 10 and 1 ton(s)/year. The incentive behind REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the potential risk of chemicals.
