Regulation (1907/2006/EC) concerning the Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals (effective June 1, 2007).
As a European Regulation, REACH does not have to be ratified at the national level. In addition, REACH is non-industry-specific and therefore applies equally to manufacturers and importers in every industry. Although the focus is on chemicals, the entire supply chain is affected. Everyone is required to report SVCH contents to the downstream user and to ensure that Annex XIV and XVII materials are eliminated/replaced by the deadline.
