REACH extends its realm to local exporters

May '08
Vietnamese exporters to the EU will have to register the chemical components used in their products with European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) if they want to continue exploiting the markets.

Failure to comply with this new regulation would only result in loss of the massive export markets that EU has to offer.

This policy was issued by David Horlock of Bureau Veritas at its seminar organized together with the European Chamber of Commerce (Eurocham), the United Nations Industrial Development Organization and the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

During the seminar, exporters were also briefed about the EU chemical regulation which was brought in force last June.

According to this, Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) law, valid from June 1 to December 1 for Vietnamese exporters, all chemicals used in products must be registered with the EU.

REACH rules targets an entire spectrum of products including chemicals, dyes, printing inks, textile and garments, footwear, toys, cosmetics and others.

ECHA will take the responsibility of monitoring the chemicals for 10 years for any health or environmental hazards.

Besides, the EU consumers will also be authorized to get information from the producers about the components, safety and their effects on the environment. In such a case, the producers will have to respond within 45 days.

This also implies that exporters must be fully aware about the origins of all the materials used in their products, especially new chemicals and those already in use.
