Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) is a European Union regulation that addresses the production and use of chemical substances, and their potential impacts on both human health and the environment. The next REACH deadline is May 31, 2018.  While this deadline may still seem a long way off, the cascade of activities it triggers may take longer than you think.  Now is the time to start. Now is the time to understand your obligations and develop your registration plan. Intertek experts will guide you along the registration pathway, we're here to help!
