What is REACH
REACH is the European legislation for REGISTRATION, EVALUATION and AUTHORISATION OF CHEMICALS. Companies have to register chemical substances they produce or import into the EU at the European Chemical Agency (ECHA) to demonstrate that the conventional use of their substances poses no risk to humans and the environment.
Who is affected by REACH

If not, the user needs to contact the manufacturer and request that his use of the chemical be included in the CSR or prepare a CSR himself.
