REACH - Solutions for the Consumer Products Market

Managing Chemicals through your Supply Chain

Business Challenge

The REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization & Restriction of Chemicals) Directive EC1907/2006 aims to protect human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals.

REACH establishes a registration system for chemical substances that requires the traceability of chemicals and identification of substances within products. Companies that place products onto the EU market including manufacturers, importers and retailers, need to ensure that their products do not contain substances that have been classified as Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).
