Registration, Evaluation, Authorization & Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a new regulation (EC1907/2006) that is being implemented by the European Union (EU) to better protect human health and the environment from hazardous chemicals. REACH establishes a registration system for chemical substances that requires the traceability of chemicals and identification of chemical substances within goods (Articles or Preparations).
