The REACH regulation (EC 1907/2006) is high on many companies’ agendas for 2018, and for good reason. The final REACH deadline is the 1st of June 2018 and it is by this point that all substances manufactured or imported into the EU over 1 tonne per year must be registered. Given the complexity of these registrations, and indeed the process to discover if you need to register the time is short to complete these before the deadline.
REACH is an extremely complex piece of legislation with impacts which vary depending on your specific business. There is simply too much detail and company specific information to provide useful summary-notes within this newsletter.
