Registration, evaluation, authorisation


The registration of substances by the manufacturer or importer is the central obligation in accordance with REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation of Chemicals).

There are further obligations for the entire supply chain to the commercial consumer – such as the preparation and transfer of safety data sheets. With very few exceptions, every substance in the EU is subject to REACH – from birth (production, import) to death (waste). In order to determine all your obligations you have to clarify your position in accordance with REACH first. Note that 1 June 2018 is the registration deadline for substances in the range of 1 – 100 metric tons per year.

Regulation (EU) No. 1907/2006 REACH – Attention: This consolidated version does not include all current changes.

Classification and labelling


Correct classification and labelling of substances and mixtures is essential to fulfil the legal requirements. This has been obligatory in accordance with CLP (Classification, Labelling & Packaging of substances and mixtures) since 1 June 2015. This overrode all other regulatory frameworks in this context.

National and international chemical law as well as other legal subjects in the sectors environment, waste or protection of employees refer to the classification of substances and mixtures with regards to chemical law.
