RoHS has not been fully implemented yet but companies should get ready for REACH, the new European directive on chemicals. This directive looks for the registration, evaluation and possible authorization of 30,000 chemicals in order to minimize damage to health and the environment.
REACH is an acronym Registration, Evaluation and Authorization of Chemicals.
Producers will be required to register products, providing details of chemical ingredients, the use of chemicals and a toxicity assessment. This is submitted to the European Chemical Agency for authorization.
