TÜV Rheinland Offers REACH Registration Services in U.S.

April 10, 2014
Companies View REACH as a Chemicals Regulation Program, but This Law Also Applies to Plastics, Metal Products and Articles Imported into the EU

TÜV Rheinland now offers REACH registration services in the U.S. for companies looking to export their products to the European Union (EU). Manufacturers in the chemicals, plastics, petroleum, cosmetics, food, electrical, mechanical, optics and engine and plant production, to name a few, must comply with REACH.

REACH is a European Community safety and environmental regulation that deals with the registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemical substances. It requires that manufacturers and exporters register all substances they produced in and/or imported to the EU in quantities ≥ 1 ton per year with the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA).

"Even though companies view REACH as a chemicals regulation, this law applies to plastics and metal products, as well as articles imported into the EU," said Scott Sagamang, business development manager for REACH services, TÜV Rheinland of North America. "In other words, whatever the product exported to the EU, it must be compliant with the REACH regulation."
