REACH the EU Regulation on Chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006) came into force on the 1st of June 2007. It requires that all companies producing chemical substances in the EU or importing them in quantities > 1 tonne per year, will register these substances in the central database run by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). REACH foresees the following three registration deadlines (30.11.2010, 31.05 2013 and 31.05.2018).
On the basis of the original CEFIC estimates it is anticipated that over 20.000 chemical substances are likely to require registration by 2018. It is imperative that companies start now to assess their REACH obligations and position in the supply chain to ensure themselves that they can hit the target and spread the costs of compliance. Please notice that Registration is only one aspect of REACH; Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction are other areas to include.
We help co-registrants and lead registrants as their service provider or as Only Representative (OR) in fulfilling all REACH requirements. We have vast experience in taking companies through the different phases of the registration process including SIEF & Consortium. We provide customer with a complete Chemical Safety Report (CSR) and necessary collection of information in the supply chain, handling of third party access rights and financial transactions, completing the technical dossier and submitting it to ECHA.
