REACH– Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals

REACH is defined by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) as “a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, while enhancing the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.

It also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals.”[1]

As a manufacturer who is not established in Europe but has subsidiaries in European economic area  , Polyram is  required to follow REACH regulations.

Companies wishing to comply with REACH regulation and to export chemical products to the EU , must nominate an Only Representative (OR) located in Europe to collaborate on the registration and risk assessment process.

The burden of proof lies with the companies. ECHA specifies that “To comply with the regulation, companies must identify and manage the risks linked to the compounds they manufacture .

They have to demonstrate to ECHA how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users.”[2]

ECHA uses processes of registration and evaluation of chemical substances, which are compiled together and which lie at the base of REACH regulatory requirements.

The committee may restrict or even ban the use of materials it deems hazardous.

Polyram’s regulatory department, with the help of R&D and the lab, works methodically to comply with all the legal requirements and registries for all the shipping destinations of our goods.

We make sure that all our products meet the requirements.

The scope of involvement for many industries with chemical substances and their regulatory compliance is not always intuitive.

There are many companies who use chemicals as downstream users and may not even realize it.

We invite you to contact us and inquire about REACH for the products you require.
