It is affecting the real beauty of our nature in addition to harming people in many ways. Our environment is getting worse day by day. But things seem to be getting better as a result of steps such as REACH compliance. Now the condition seems to be taking a new direction.

REACH is a new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use. The Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemical substances are related to this organization. A law came into force on 1st June 2007 which has aimed to improve the human health protection and its environment through the better identification of the basic properties of chemical substances. It provides a high level of protection of human health and the environment from the use of chemicals. It makes the people who place chemicals on the market (manufacturers and importers responsible for understanding and managing the risks associated with their use.) It allows the free movement of substances on the EU market. It enhances innovation in and the competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.
Not only this, it also promotes the innovative capability and competitive of the EU chemicals industry. REACH provides great benefits to the environment by providing greater responsibility to the industry to manage the risks from chemicals and to give safety information on the substances. Hence, the manufacturers and the importers will have to collect information on the properties of chemicals so that they can be safely handled.

The biggest challenge is to understand and follow the legislation as it sounds confusing. This can be simply said that REACH forces manufacturers in the EU the registration of chemicals it is using in excess of one ton annually with a new central chemical agency set up in Helsinki and Finland. Here, the registrations are based on supplying data such as chemical types and uses, volumes per annum and test data results.
