Understanding REACH on a Global Scale
A Complete Guide to REACH - the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals
REACH – the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals – is a regulatory framework intended to protect human health and the environment from risks posed by exposure to chemical substances. Generally, REACH regulations apply to all chemical substances, including those used in industrial processes, the workplace, and everyday household items.
Several countries across the globe have enacted REACH regulations, but one of the first to be implemented was the European Union’s REACH (EC 1907/2006) in 2007. EU REACH is considered the standard for REACH compliance, sharing a similar purpose with REACH regulations in other countries. The primary difference between worldwide REACH regulations is data collection and reporting requirements.
