The Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Regulation which covers the use and production of chemicals in the EU. For some sectors, the impact of this regulation is far reaching and is forcing organisations to reformulate or redesign products in fundamental ways. However - many organisations are not aware that they could be significantly affected by the restriction of chemicals which their products rely on.
