Latest updates on India REACH - Free webinar

28th of May 2020
India REACH - webinar

India-REACH is India’s chemical regulation currently in draft stage known as “Draft Chemicals (Management and Safety) Rules, 20xx”. The rules shall come into force on the date of their publication in the official gazette, expected to be published by end of 2020 and shall apply to all Substances, Substances in Mixtures and Intermediates that are Manufactured, Imported, Placed or intended to be Placed in Indian Territory above 1 tonne per year.

India REACH requires companies to submit Notification for all chemicals to the Indian authority, whereas Registration is required only for chemicals meeting CMR properties. For registration, a separate list shall be maintained by the authority in India where more chemicals will be added after initial notification period. Further regulatory requirements apply to companies handling priority and hazardous chemicals such as chemical safety report, exposure scenarios, restriction, prohibition, site safety report, safety audit reports, onsite emergency plans and notification of chemical accidents. The rules also cover separate list called as priority & hazardous chemicals.

Foreign manufacturers can submit notification, registration etc. by appointing an Authorized Representative in India to fulfil legal obligations required under India REACH. Since most of the requirements shall apply within 1.5 years of rules coming into force, it is therefore recommended to prepare well in advance.
