REACH @ Nouryon

We actively maintain our REACH registrations and continuously implement other REACH developments to ensure continued compliance.

We are dedicated to ensuring the safe use of our products in compliance with EU REACH (Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006). This regulation aims to enhance the protection of human health and the environment from potential risks associated with chemicals. REACH, which stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals, outlines procedures for gathering and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances.

What is REACH?

REACH stands for Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals and includes established procedures for collecting and assessing information on the properties and hazards of substances. One of the obligations in REACH is the registration of all substances imported/manufactured above one ton in the EU. 

REACH @Nouryon

As part of our compliance with REACH, we conduct chemical hazard, exposure, and risk assessments, and communicate safe usage through extended safety data sheets (e-SDS). We require new suppliers within the European Economic Area to provide e-SDS documentation (along with other necessary data). Our site and procurement teams collaborate in this process, with our PSRA teams providing advice on REACH aspects and conducting regulatory checks.

We are a member of the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) REACH Action Plan for Review/Improvement of Registration Dossiers. We are also actively engaged in new chemical REACH-like regulations and are conducting registrations in Taiwan, South Korea (K-REACH), Turkey (KKDIK), and Great Britain (UK-REACH).
