Short description: REACH, the new European system for regulating chemical safety, will affect most businesses in Europe in one way or another, even those who would normally not consider themselves involved in chemical regulation. REACH is a big change in the way that chemicals are regulated, but it works on principles that are quite easy to understand, and most businesses should be able to fulfil their new duties. This website aims to explain REACH, what it means for you, and how you can fulfil your new responsibilities.
