BASF: 40,000 Preregistrations for REACH

The European chemicals policy REACH came into force on June 2007. The first stage is now complete with the end of the preregistration phase on 1 December. BASF submitted some 40,000 preregistrations with the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency) in Helsinki by the deadline, making BASF one of the companies most affected by REACH.

Alone the interpretation of the REACH regulation may lead to extensive additional workload. This is shown in the regulation concerning reimporting. It is common practice for quite a number of substances to be packaged in non-EU countries and to be reimported afterwards. As a consequence of this regulation BASF had to file preregistrations in 15,000 cases for products not only for the production within Europe but also for the reimport of the same products from non-EU countries.

BASF took steps early on to get ready for REACH. A REACH Implementation Team was set up back in 2005. Central databases were developed specially for compiling dossiers and to facilitate project management. The BASF Group estimates that implementing REACH will cost the company approximately EUR 550 million by the final implementation deadline in 2018.
