REACH Statement

The Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals Regulation (“REACH”) became effective as of June 1, 2007.  The European Union (“EU”) enacted REACH in order to ensure that substances that are either manufactured within or imported into the EU have been properly evaluated, registered and the method of safe use is effectively communicated to the end-user.  The European Chemicals Agency (“ECHA”) was established as the agency to administer and enforce the new regulations.
