REACH enters into force


The chemical industry has not stood still since the adoption of the Regulation in December last year. Cefic continues to be very heavily involved in several of the REACH Implementation Projects (RIPs) which will produce all important guidance for industry.
In the meantime it has produced 5 highly regarded REACH Preparation Newsletters over the last 15 months, which the Commission itself has acknowledged to be the best source of practical insight for industry on how to prepare. Members workshops are always completely sold out and the new commercial wholly owned subsidiary of Cefic - ReachCentrum - is providing workshops and consultancy for member and non-member organisations ahead of its core business function, which will be the facilitation and management of consortia.
"Indeed, REACH must be seen as an opportunity for our industry to demonstrate that it has a sound knowledge of its products and excellent practice for safe manufacturing and use of chemicals. Cefic will play an active role in helping companies to comply with the regulation" comments Alain Perroy, Cefic Director General.
