REACH Pre-Registration Ends Today

  • Folks,

    REACH (Registration, Evaluation, and Authorization of Chemicals) pre-registration ends today.  If your company imports or manufactures more than 1 metric ton per year of any chemical, the chemical was supposed to be pre-registered by today.  As I write this (1930hours EST) it is likely too late to pre-register as it is already December 1 in the EU.

    While the EU expected about 30,000 chemicals to be pre-registered, I hear that over 1 million were.  REACH's 849 pages (vs RoHS's 6 pages) make it the most ambitious law ever enacted by the EU.

    It is expected that this law will take some time to unfold, stay tuned for updates.
