REACH Services REACH Services

 REACH – the Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals Regulations – entered into force on 1 June 2007. The Regulations are aimed at ensuring a high level of protection for human health and the environment from the supply and use of chemicals. The Regulations apply to all chemicals classified as dangerous whether as individual substances or components of preparations and articles.

REACH is likely to have a significant impact on many businesses - not just those companies manufacturing and supplying chemicals, but all downstream users as well. It is important to understand how REACH will affect your business and to develop an appropriate compliance strategy. The cost of getting it wrong, including un-necessary over-reaction to the legal requirements, could be substantial.

Gillies Associates Limited can provide technical support and advice to help you prepare for pre-registration and registration:

    • Initial review of duties under REACH, assessment of existing preparedness and key challenges
    • Assessment and review of environmental risks
    • Assessment and review of human health hazard and exposure data
    • Developing and validating Exposure Scenarios, including specification of appropriate Risk Management Measures
    • Preparing REACH-compliant extended Safety Data Sheets
    • Preparing Technical Dossiers and Chemical Safety Reports
    • Training your staff on REACH awareness and compliance
