REACH Compliance

REACH Compliance

REACH stands for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals. The regulation was created by the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) of the European Union (EU) and became effective June 1, 2007. This regulation was adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals.

At the center of REACH is a list of chemicals identified as being a health and/or environmental risk. The list originated with seven RoHS chemicals restricted for use in electrical and electronic equipment (EEE) and has expanded to include 201 industrial and consumer chemicals. Updated twice per year in January and July, it’s known as the Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC). An additional list known as Substitute It Now (SIN) includes chemicals being evaluated that may be added to the SVHC list in the future.

Companies like ResinLab that create and manufacture chemical products need to be up-to-date on these risks and do their best to substitute SIN & SVHC chemicals for other more benign alternatives. Company chemical databases must include associated hazards and SIN or SVHC identification. ResinLab has already eliminated the use of the ten RoHS chemicals which are carcinogenic, mutagenic, or otherwise very toxic.

ResinLab‘s compliance department is dedicated to maintaining our chemical database and monitoring these regulatory changes to be able to provide the RESINLAB REACH COMPLIANCE LETTER. We have identified our popular non-compliant products and provided REACH-compliant alternatives for customers. ResinLab has several other non-compliant products currently being reformulated to be REACH compliant. ResinLab is equipped to create REACH-compliant versions of other products upon request.
