REACH Compliance

 

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) this law entered into force on 1 June 2007. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through the better and earlier identification of the intrinsic properties of chemical substances. At the same time, REACH aims to enhance innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry. REACH applies to all chemicals or chemical products imported or produced in the EU. The European Chemicals Agency will manage the technical, scientific and administrative aspects of the REACH system.

RoHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) the RoHS directive aims to restrict certain dangerous substances commonly used in electronic and electronic equipment. The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become law in each member state of European Union.
