The EU’s chemicals formula

As a new European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) opens its doors in Helsinki, multi-billion euro industries are preparing to deal with the effects of one of the most ambitious pieces of legislation ever agreed at EU level.


A regulation for the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals, known as REACH, will force industry to apply to register 30,000 chemicals. Some of them may not be approved. Stavros Dimas, the European environment commissioner, calls REACH “the most progressive chemicals legislation in the world”.
