REACH becomes mandatory for textile & footwear sector
Jun '08
The textile and footwear exporters of Pakistan will not be able to ship their products to any of the nation that comes under European Union (EU), unless they are certified by Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH).

SGS Pakistan had recently organized a seminar on 'Reach Certification' in collaboration with Site Association of Industry (SAI) for making the entrepreneurs aware about the new regulation that will soon come into implementation.

Experts from the related field suggest that, REACH is a new EU chemical regulation that has replaced the existing 40 regulations and directives to create single system that will govern all chemicals utilized in EU. According to this rule, exporters will have to provide specific details of the chemical components they are using in the products.

The aim of REACH is to make the manufacturers aware about risk that comes with the use of harmful chemicals and encourage the entrepreneurs to use alternative methods.

Authorities believe that, all the enterprises that export their manufactured goods to EU should register themselves with REACH and get their products tested and approved. This in turn will help them have hindrance free trade with various countries.
