REACH


Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) is an EU Regulation addressing the production and use of chemical substances and their potential impacts on human health and the environment. 

The primary objective of REACH is to control the release of chemicals and substances into the environment and reduce risk to humans. The Regulation seeks to ensure that those who place chemicals and substances on the EU market understand the impact of the substances they are releasing and ensure the appropriate level of controls are in place.

MedTech Europe supports REACH as a means of minimising risks to human health and the environment while promoting innovation and competitiveness.
