Safe chemical substance handling

REACH: registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals

In July 2007, the European Union’s REACH Regulation reformed chemicals legislation in Europe. This EC Regulation [REGULATION (EC) No. 1907/2006] governs the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals, hence the acronym REACH. It affects all players in the supply chain – from manufacturers, processors and traders to end-users of chemical substances. It applies to all chemical substances, irrespective of whether they have hazardous properties or not. Articles are only affected by REACH if they release substances or contain substances causing particular concern.


Registration of substances at LANXESS

 

LANXESS submitted all necessary pre-registration information to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) in Helsinki, Finland, in time for the December 1, 2008 deadline. Since then LANXESS has registered some 360 substances with the ECHA by the Phase I and Phase II deadlines.

In total, the specialty chemicals group expects to prepare substance dossiers for around 750 substances and submit them to the ECHA by the end of all three phases in May 2018.
