REACH Implementation Rules and Guidelines

Published January 21, 2008

Restricted Substances Overview

The new European regulatory regime for chemicals, known as REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals), entered into force on June 1, 2007. EU manufacturers and importers will have to comply with its registration requirements starting on June 1, 2008. Furthermore, many non-EU companies may have to deal with some aspects of REACH in this same time frame if they or their customers export products containing chemical substances to the European Economic Area (composed of the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway), and consequently, must consider taking actions now to comply with REACH requirements.

A previous EIATRACK Special Report discussed how REACH applies to electrical and electronic products ("REACH and Electrical and Electronic Products"). This update provides critical information on recent rules and guidelines that will impact electronic companies in their efforts to comply with REACH.
