The REACH Regulation is designed to deliver both a high level of protection from the potential risks posed by chemical substances and a strong, innovative European industry that is competitive on the global market. REACH concerns not only the traditional chemical industry, but also businesses from several other sectors. Relevant companies need to start working on registration now in order to meet the 1 June 2013 deadline. The European Commission and the European Chemicals Agency have developed tools to make sure that SMEs are well equipped and ready to fulfil their obligations.
