This guidance document provides manufacturers with a straightforward and practical understanding of the requirements under REACH and the obligations facing our industry
It is a common perception that REACH is a chemical industry issue. But this is incorrect: UK manufacturers are directly affected by this significant piece of European legislation through the introduction of new disclosure obligations and risk management techniques. Increasingly in future, manufacturers will come under pressure to consider using less hazardous substitutes to commonly used chemicals. REACH is expected to affect around 30,000 substances placed on the market in the EU.
This guidance document has been produced to provide EEF members with a straightforward and practical understanding of the requirements under REACH and the obligations facing industry; it is by no means a definitive legal interpretation of the text.
