Learn the basics of one of Europe's longest and most complex pieces of legislation - REACH

Since its introduction, there have been a number of amendments to the Regulation, the most recent consolidated version of the Regulation stands at over 500 pages, which itself is supported by thousands of pages of guidance and various implementing Regulations. REACH remains one of the longest and most complex legislative instruments implemented in the history of the EU, requiring a combination of legal, scientific and technical processes and expertise to successfully navigate.

Why is knowing REACH regulation important?

The primary objective of REACH is to improve the protection of human health and the environment. Without compliance to Regulation, companies and their personnel could open themselves to potential fines, injunctions or even prison sentences. Understanding the Regulation and how to comply with it ensures the safety of humans and the environment along with protecting the interests of your company.
