Further information on REACH
To ensure that industrial chemicals do not pose a risk to humankind and the environment, chemical substances are authorized in three stages that are governed by the REACH (Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals) Regulation.
Manufacturers and importers of chemicals analyze chemical substances and register them with the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency).
The authorities check companies’ registrations, inspecting the quality of 5 percent of all registration dossiers. In addition to this, selected chemicals are assessed with regard to their properties of high concern and risk factors for humankind and the environment.
3. Authorization and restriction:
Although most chemicals do not need to be licensed in Europe, REACH requires substances of very high concern (SVHC) to be authorized. The ECHA can issue an authorization for these substances on request as long as the applicant proves that the chemical’s risks are manageable or the socio-economic benefits outweigh these risks. A restriction applies if the manufacture, marketing and use of the chemical is banned or restricted.
For the registration or authorization of industrial chemicals (according to the European Chemicals Act / REACH Regulation), of plant protection products and of biocides, tests on various physicochemical, application-oriented / technical, safety-relevant and ecotoxicological properties must generally be carried out in compliance with the principles of good laboratory practice (GLP).
