Companies need guidance on REACH initiatives

It is learnt from the REACH agency that at the recently held chemicals regulation forum held in Hangzhou, China, representatives from the Ministry of Commerce, the State General Administration of Quality Supervision and Inspection, REACH agencies and chemical companies analyzed the problems in current REACH registration process.

During the meeting it was agreed that relevant government departments, industry associations, agencies and enterprises should accelerate establishment of effective cooperation mechanisms to cope with trade and technical barriers in REACH regulations.

According to the agency, as of November 30, 2008, the deadline of statutory pre-registration date, China had more than 2,000 companies and over 40,000 chemicals, which had already passed pre-registration in the European Union. But so far, only three chemicals have been formally registered. Vast majority of enterprises are still holding a wait and see attitude.

Under EU rules, the companies must obtain official registration before November 30, 2010, leaving only 13 months from the deadline of official registration. It is learnt that high registration costs, difficult factors of data detection and collection are making these enterprises apprehensive.

On the other hand, companies are uncertain about how to deal with these new trade barriers and they urgently need guidance and support from relevant departments.

The forum pointed out that more products will get through official registration of REACH legislation; as long as all parties work together and it will also effectively promote the green characteristics process of China's export products.
