REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and restriction of Chemicals)
The European Union's (EU) new, wide-ranging overhaul of its chemical control legislation known as REACH took effect on June 1, 2007. It will be implemented over the next 11 years and is designed to:

Provide a high level of protection to human health and the environment. Improve the competitiveness of the European chemical industry and encourage innovation.

Under REACH, all chemicals imported into or made in the EU in quantities of greater than one ton per year must undergo a process of registration, evaluation and authorization for use. Some chemicals, those of low hazard or that are regulated by other legislation, are exempted from REACH.
