Reach Directive is the European Union Regulation which addresses the production and use of the chemical substances which have the potential impact on the human health and environment. It is the abbreviated as Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals.

The program tests new and existing chemicals to be able to provide safety information about a specific substance. After more than a decade since it was first discussed at EU ministers’ level, REACH chemical legislation came into force but there is a worrying lack of knowledge of its existence among the downstream users of chemical substances. The main objective of REACH chemical legislation is that no one should be left unaware of REACH EU or REACH chemical legislation, and how far the chemical consuming industries are aware of the legislation and its potential lethal impact on human lives and environment. Under REACH chemical legislation the European Commission has the power to ban the use of a chemical in certain products, or to ban it completely. It is noteworthy that REACH EU applies to chemicals manufactured in or imported into the EU too. It does not apply to the use of chemicals in finished articles where there is no danger of a substance in that article leaching into the environment. There are numerous REACH consulting firms that offer seminars and courses aimed at explaining the regulation and analyzing the potential impact of the new legislation on the product portfolio of a manufacturer or importer of chemical substances. The benefits of the REACH system will come gradually, as more and more substances are phased into REACH.
