|REACH is intended to stop harmful
substances appearing in consumer goods and making their way into
people’s bodies and the environment.
At its heart, REACH is a simple concept. The problem of the risks to human health and the environment posed by thousands of un-assessed chemicals on the market solved by encouraging companies to risk assess the chemicals they use.
Outcomes should include a market for chemicals that have been proved safe, controls for risky substances, information transfer through the supply chain and bans on anything too hazardous to justify its use.
REACH is a classic example of where EU legislation is transposed in to UK law, and there is little support for industry in its implementation.

The EU’s new chemical safety regime struggled over its first hurdle in 2008 and it is limbering up for the next in November (2010), when full registration of many substances is required.
