Eurofins is a global service provider to the Chemical industry, offering a comprehensive range of testing and consultancy services for REACH as well as for worldwide registrations. We are backed by a large team of experienced scientists and regulatory specialists that are available to support you with all steps of the regulatory process under REACH. This includes both phase-in and the non-phase-in substances.

The REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 became effective June 1, 2007 creating a single registration system for both new and existing chemicals in Europe. The main objectives of REACH are 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.

The upcoming deadline 2018 for substances over 1 t/a (phase 3 substances) covers less widely used substances and it is likely that less data will already be available to fulfill the REACH requirements. Therefore we encourage our clients to start planning at an early stage to ensure laboratory and regulatory capacity.

Due to a large variety of chemicals tested for the REACH deadlines in 2010 and 2013 we are well prepared to effectively support you also for the 2018 deadline as well as for registrations outside the EU.
