Entrepreneurs urged to register with REACH

Sri Lankan entrepreneurs, who export their products to the European Union (EU), will have to comply by Regulations set by Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH), which came into effect on June 1, 2008. This information was given to the entrepreneurs in a recently held seminar which was organized by the European Chamber of Commerce of Sri Lanka.

According to the new EU law, products fall within the parameter of REACH, will have to get registered with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

The substances that come within the criteria include chemicals used in production process as well as chemicals released from finished products. The REACH regulation applies to companies which are exporting over one ton of product, per annum, to the EU countries.

Industry insiders suggest that, this REACH regulation is likely to affect Sri Lankan textile and garments sector which releases chemicals like dyes during the first wash.


Although, the enterprises that are not directly linked with EU, are not allowed to pre-register and register themselves with the ECHA, they can appoint an 'Only representative' for doing the procedure.
