REACH 2018 Web Pages Online
ECHA, the European Chemicals Agency with headquarters in Helsinki, Finland, has launched a set of new web pages related to REACH 2018, which outline the phases leading to a successful registration. The pages help companies to begin their preparations already now and give them easy access to the current information on ECHA's website.
The registration process has been divided into seven phases and each phase has its own web page. Each of these pages provides key information, practical tips for registrants and links to further information relevant for that phase. Special attention has been paid to ensure that the content is understandable also to small and medium-sized enterprises. The links lead to three levels of reading: getting started, essential reading and going deeper. The new REACH 2018 web pages are available in 23 EU languages.
ECHA urges all affected companies to start preparing for the last REACH registration deadline on 31 May 2018 well ahead of time. This registration deadline concerns substances manufactured or imported in low volumes, 1 to 100 tonnes per year. The national REACH helpdesks and the ECHA Helpdesk are there to support companies during the run towards the deadline and a new series of webinars will be organised for registrants in the coming years. Later this year, ECHA will publish its ‘Registration 2018 Roadmap', which will outline the specific actions being taken by ECHA, in order to make the best possible preparation for 2018.
