REACH is a regulation which was implemented by European Parliament across all member states.

The main objective of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the surrounding environment. As well as to increase the competitiveness of European manufacturers.

All of the chemicals produced or imported to European Union have to be registered, including those which are ending up in the finished product, such as clothing, furniture or plastic.

Under REACH regulation you can have one of the following roles:

  • Manufacturer

    If you make chemicals in European Union, or even, if you make them just for export you still might have the obligations under REACH

  • Importer

    If you import chemicals to EU, in substances, mixtures or end products you still might have some obligations under REACH

  • Downstream Users

    The majority of companies are dealing with chemicals in some way or another, even without realising it. You might have some obligations under REACH

  • Companies outside of EU

    Those companies which are registered outside of EU, are not obliged under REACH regulations, even when exporting products to the Customs Zone of European Union. The sole obligations lie with importers or the only-representative of non-EU manufacturer. However, it should be highlighted that companies registered outside of EU, can not register their products or chemicals under REACH and therefore would not be able to import their products or chemicals to EU without the EU registered company.
