REACH solutions for raw materials importer and supplier compliance requirements.
The REACH Regulation (Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals - 1907/2006) places compliance requirements on companies importing and refining raw materials in the EU. The obligations placed on suppliers of raw materials (e.g. metals, alloys, oils, and a range of other substances) by REACH are complicated by the large volume, the global supply chains, and the chemical complexity of raw materials sold in Europe.
“REACH considers metals as substances and, therefore, all metals must be registered and assessed… Under REACH, alloys are considered as preparations, in other words, mixtures of metals that have the toxicological properties of their components.” - Xstrata, Inputs for the Public Consultation of the Competitiveness of the European Metals Industry
