REACH and Waste

Under REACH, waste is not considered as a substance and therefore most obligations do not apply to waste. Nevertheless, suppliers of chemicals must show that risks can be properly managed also in the waste life cycle stage.

Once recovered substances cease to be waste, they are again subject to REACH obligations but can also benefit from a number of exemptions.
