May 31 deadline for registration of chemicals under REACH
May 31 is the final deadline for companies to register all chemicals manufactured, imported or placed on the EU market above one tonne per year, under REACH—the European Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals. Without registration, substances cannot be manufactured or imported into the EU beginning June 1, 2018.

REACH applies to nearly all chemical substances, including textile chemicals. This key EU legislation on chemicals aims to improve the protection of human health and the environment, promote alternative methods to animal testing as well as ensure the free circulation of substances in the internal market while enhancing innovation and competitiveness of the EU chemicals industry.

“Manufacturers and importers of chemicals must identify and manage risks linked to the substances they produce and market. By May 31, 2018, all existing chemicals manufactured, imported or placed on the EU market above 1 tonne per year will have to be registered. Without registration, substances cannot be manufactured or imported into the EU,” the Brussels-headquartered European Commission says on its website.

In line with “the polluter pays principle”, REACH shifted the burden of proof to industry, making it responsible for the safety of chemicals along the supply chain. To comply with the regulation, companies have to demonstrate to European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) how the substance can be safely used, and they must communicate the risk management measures to the users.

REACH requires new forms of cooperation among companies, enhancing communication along the supply chain, as well as developing tools to guide and assist companies and public authorities in its implementation.

Companies also need to comply with the requirements resulting from the evaluation, authorisation and restriction chapters of REACH.

The Commission will discuss the outcomes and follow-up actions of the second REACH review with the European Parliament, member states and stakeholders at a public conference, planned for June 2018. (RKS)
