REACH & Industry
The impact of REACH is not only on the chemical industry but also on the article producers/importers.
Article means an object which during production is given a special shape, surface or design which determines its function to a greater degree than does its chemical composition. Such as electrical equipments, electronics, toys, garments, tiers, tools, plastic products, auto components etc, are all affected by REACH. For example, chemical companies need to do REACH registration and prepare SDS. Manufacturers and importers of articles (products) shall ensure that REACH restricted substances and SVHC in their products do not exceed limits outlined by REACH (0.1% wt./wt.).
