The Right Time to ACT for REACH
1 June 2007 was an important date for consumer goods and the European chemicals industry. While REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), a comprehensive European Union (EU) chemical policy, officially entered into effect, a central, Helsinki-based European Chemical Agency (ECHA) also started operations on the same day. Prior to pre-registration ended on December 1, 2008, there are only 18 months for the industries to get preparations done in order to comply with the requirements. After that, registration process will begin with other tight deadlines.
Influencing manufacturers, importers, distributors, and downstream users, your obligations under REACH will vary depending on the role your business plays in the supply chain. Considering the complexity of the regulation framework with tight deadlines, careful preparation and early planning will enable your business remain competitive on the EU market. A sound knowledge of your products and excellent practice for safe manufacturing and use of chemicals can thus greatly help. With this in mind, SGS is committed to supporting industries for REACH compliance with the following diversified services.
