The latest detailed explanation of EU REACH regulation

what is reach regulation

in May 2003, the European Commission launched the draft regulation of the new chemical policy of the "registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction system of chemicals", referred to as the reach system [1907/2006 (EC)]

reach implementation schedule:

reach came into force in June 2007

in June 2008, the European Chemicals Agency was officially put into operation, Undertake the technical and management work of reach in the EU

pre registration of substances in stages from June 2008 to November 2008

registration deadline for substances with a production of 1000 tons and above (cmr1, class 2) in November 2010

registration deadline for substances with a production of 100 tons and above (cmr1, class 2) in June 2013

registration deadline for substances with a production of 1 tons and above (cmr1, class 2) in June 2018

voluntary registration deadline before the deadline, Registration documents can be submitted since June, 2008. New substances must be registered before being put on the market, and the registration date will begin on June 1st, 2008

reach regulation requirements:

1. Registration

this is the core content of reach regulation. It is estimated that 80% of all substances only need to be registered. The main purpose is to require enterprises (manufacturers or importers) to take responsibility for the safety of their products, collect sufficient information about the hazards of chemicals, and use it to determine appropriate risk management measures for manufacturers and importers to implement, and recommend these measures to downstream users gbt7314 (1) 987 metal tightening test method

2. Evaluation

evaluation is divided into two types:

(1) dossier evaluation: the European chemical administration inspects whether the registered technical documents are complete and comply with the regulations, and inspects the animal test plan to avoid unnecessary animal tests

(2) substanceevaluation: the European Chemicals Agency and the competent authorities of Member States coordinate to confirm the risk of chemical substances endangering human health and the environment

3. Licensing

licensing is carried out in two steps:

(1) the European Chemical Agency publishes the list of candidate substances that meet the licensing conditions and the scope of use of these substances that can be exempted from licensing (for example, because there are other regulations that have sufficient control over their use), as well as the application deadline

(2) for each use and marketing of candidate substances, permission must be applied for before the deadline. Before applying for the license of a substance, the applicant must analyze the possibility of its substitution. If it is determined that there is a suitable substitute, the substitution plan must be submitted; If there is no identified substitute, the relevant research and development must be notified. All substances belonging to PBTS and vpvbs can be licensed only when the applicant can show that the risk of using this substance can be properly controlled. If it cannot be properly controlled, it can only be allowed if there is no suitable one, so you must remember that substitution can be provided, and the socio-economic benefits of its use exceed the risks it brings to human health and the environment

4. The main steps of limiting

are: in the evaluation stage, the chemical substance is judged by the member states or the European chemical administration to have unacceptable risks, and various measures to reduce risks need to be identified. When further evaluation is made, a proposal for limiting the substance can be put forward, and the interested parties can comment on this proposal. The decision is made by the European Commission. For this chemical substance:

(1) the risk is manageable, so it is not limited

(2) it is forbidden to use the services we provide to enhance customers' goodwill towards Jinan assay itself; Or

(3) the decision to completely prohibit the use

the existing restrictions made in accordance with directive76/769/eec, such as the ban on asbestos and the restrictions on some azo dyes, will be incorporated into reach regulations and continue to be implemented. (end)
