Keeping up with REACH and Other Chemical Legislation


Developments surrounding chemical legislation in the EU and abroad mean that all companies manufacturing or importing chemical substances must be increasingly alert and pro-active.

The second REACH registration deadline is approaching all too quickly and is set for 31 May 2013. As a result, companies which import substances in the '100 tonnes or more per year' band have very little time remaining to organise themselves for submitting all the necessary data to ECHA. It is estimated that there are at least 2300 substances which will have to be registered for the first time in 2013.
