Siemens PLM Software to help industry with 'REACH' regulations

May '08
Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, announced it has added support for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation, the new European Community Regulation on chemicals and their safe use, to the integrated compliance management capability of its Teamcenter software portfolio.

Teamcenter enables organizations to streamline the tracking of chemical substances required for REACH compliance by making these requirements an integral part of the product development process.

"We are committed to partnering with our customers to stay one step ahead of evolving regulations like REACH," said Steve Bashada, vice president of Teamcenter Applications, Siemens PLM Software.

"With Teamcenter's new REACH regulation support, companies can easily collect, compile, aggregate and analyze information describing the chemical constituents of its organization's products, thus ensuring compliance and avoiding REACH-related supply chain disruptions."

Holistic approach to compliance management:

The REACH regulation was introduced in June 2007. It is considered the strictest law to date regulating chemical substances and will impact product manufacturers in aerospace, automotive, high-tech and electronics, apparel, and other industries throughout the world.

The REACH regulation requires all chemicals that are imported into the European Union in quantities greater than one metric ton per year to be tested for health and safety and registered with the European Chemicals Agency located in Helsinki, Finland.
