EUROPEAN 'REACH' REGULATIONS 

For immediate assistance with this complex topic, please call Tony Baker at 416-500-7287

Otherwise, please read on....

WHAT IS REACH?

REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) is a new European Union regulation on the safe use of chemicals and products containing chemical substances.  

WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW?

In order to avoid cost and loss of business, it is important that all manufacturers, importers and downstream users of chemicals, including foreign exporters to Europe are fully aware of the impact this new legislation has on their business.

HOW CAN WE HELP?

We provide a service to exporting companies to help them minimize the costs, confusion and bureaucracy of dealing with REACH. To help you through the REACH maze, we will:

  • meet with you to review your situation and provide understandable information on REACH
  • assess the various ‘substances’ in your products for amounts and exemptions, etc.
  • inform you of what needs to be done, any options, and the likely costs.
  • set up the necessary arrangements on-the-ground in Europe relating to any substances that must be registered.
  • quarter-back the whole process in Europe on behalf of you, the client

Call 416-500-7287 for a free telephone consultation. Please ask for Tony Baker.

REACH "ONLY REPRESENTATIVE"

REACH gives the option to non-EU manufacturers to appoint an Only Representative (OR) in the EU to make sure that their exports comply with REACH without having to disclose information on their products to the importers. The OR must carry out all obligations of importers under REACH, including (pre-)registration.

To appoint an Only Representative, or to learn more about their function, please call Tony Baker at 416-500-7287

REACH - INCREASING IMPORTANCE IN THE FUTURE?

REACH is possibly the most complex piece of legislation ever to be enacted by the European Union, and similar legislation is anticipated to become a requirement in China, the United States, and Canada as well.

It will impact every part of the supply chain from chemical producers to end-users by requiring proactive communication of risks and safe handling procedures for dangerous substances.

Knowing the precise chemical composition of your product is required under the REACH directive so that you can satisfy EU notification and registration requirements, and enable you to respond to information requests from consumers within the legally required period.
