EU REACH is a European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals.

The EU REACH regulation set out an approach for the control of manufacture, import and use of chemicals in the EU, and entered into force on 1 Jun 2007. EU REACH introduced an obligation to send a registration, to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) for chemical substances on their own or in mixtures, which are manufactured in or imported into the EU in quantities of at or above 1 t/a by any company in the EU. The obligation applies in certain cases also to substances in articles. Failure to register will mean for a company that it is no longer allowed to manufacture the substance in or import it into the EU.

A full copy of REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 can be found here.

The core contents under EU REACH can summarized as follows:

? Four Obligations:

Registration, Evaluation, Notification/Authorisation, and Restriction

? Three Chemical Objects:

Substances (phase-in substance and non-phase-in substance), Mixture, Article

? Four Major Roles:

EU Manufacturers, EU Importers, the Only Representatives, Downstream Users

? Two Administrative Tools:

REACH-IT for information communication, IUCLID for creating dossier

Applicable Scope

Registration shall apply to any of the following conditions under EU REACH:

? Substance as such, Manufacture / Importation > 1 t/a;

? Substance in a mixture, Manufacture / Importation > 1 t/a;

? Substance intended to release in an article, Manufacture / Importation above a concentration of 0.1% (w/w) & > 1 t/a ;

Note: The release of a substance from an article is deliberately planned and has a specific function in the use of the article. This is frequently not the main but an accessory function of the object, such as air freshener.

Registration Bodies

? Manufacturers and importers of substances, mixtures, article in EU;

? Non-EU companies can export to the European Union through two different routes under REACH: either via an importer who has registered the substance, or by appointing an Only Representative (OR).

Registration Types

EU REACH covers different types of registrations: standard registration (Article 10) and intermediate registration (Article 17 and 18).


Other Obligations under EU REACH

If a given substance constitutes a risk to human health or the environment, ECHA and the Member States will evaluate the information submitted by companies, and even include the substance in the Authorisation List or Restriction List. Manufacturers, importers or downstream users of a substance on the Authorisation List can apply for authorisation. Restrictions may limit or ban the manufacture, placing on the market or use of a substance.

How to Comply with EU REACH?

??Set up branch offices in the EU:

Non-EU manufacturers shall comply with the time consuming and complicated process under REACH regulation with high costs.

??Entrust local importers to comply with EU REACH:

Non-EU manufacturers have to consider the situation that communication of information needed by the importers would require the disclosure of confidential business information.

??Appoint an Only Representative (OR):

Non-EU manufacturers can prevent their valuable substance information from being disclosed to the public and their importers in EU while appointing an OR.
