Chemical inventories have been introduced in many countries and regions worldwide in recent years. These are intended to provide an overview of which chemicals are used, in what quantities they are circulating and how they are used. A key objective is to collect data on hazardous properties. This will greatly facilitate reliable classification and, at the same time, make it easier to identify particularly hazardous substances and to restrict or prohibit their use.
The EU pioneered this process with the REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, adopted in 2006. Since then, numerous other countries, especially in Asia, have passed comparable legislation that is more or less aligned on REACH.
In many countries, it is therefore necessary to check whether a binding inventory of chemicals exists before marketing them. If this is the case, careful examination of the products to be imported or marketed is essential. We will be happy to guide you through the process and check step by step what needs to be done so that you can sell your products in accordance with the law. Thanks to our expertise with all currently existing chemical inventories, with us you have an experienced partner at your side.
In many countries outside Europe, there is a risk of severe fines and imprisonment for non-compliance with these laws or even a complete ban on marketing. A careful examination of all products is therefore the lynchpin of a legally compliant sale.
