About the REACH Regulation

REACH Regulation (Regulation 1907/2006 on Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) was published in December 2006 and came into effect June, 2007. REACH pursues a double objective:

  • On one hand, to replace a number of European Directives and Regulations with a harmonized system for the whole the European Union
  • On the other hand, to protect human health and the environment through better control and knowledge of chemical substances 


The deadlines detailed in REACH Regulation

REACH regulation consisted of three deadlines:

  • November 30th 2010: Deadline for substances over 1000 tons per year; or over 100 tons per year if very toxic to aquatic organisms; or over 1 ton per year if CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic or reprotoxic properties)
  • May 31st 2013: Deadline for substances at 100-1000 tons per year
  • May 31st 2018: Last registration deadline, covering substances on tonnage band 1-100 ton/year
