Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH)

REACH was introduced on 1st June 2007 as a new European Community Regulation relating to chemicals and their safe use (EC 1907/2006).

It deals with the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemical substances. The aim of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment through better and earlier identification of chemical substance properties, with the intention to enhance economic efficiency.

At Nylacast we use, REACH as a rule book for the safe buying in of chemicals and a way of monitoring the company needs. It gives both sellers and buyers of chemicals responsibility for ensuring safe shipping. In order to make Nylon we have to register to REACH in order to gain the chemicals. With REACH it allows us to assess any risks with the shipping in of chemicals and how to deal with them. This allows our customers to know that the supply of the chemicals is being done safely.
