REACH is the European Union's regulation for the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals. REACH affects the chemical industry and all users, including a large part of Europe’s industry and retail businesses.
Univar has been involved in the REACH process for several years including working with the FECC, a European association of the chemical distribution and trading industry, as well as local industry federations to develop more practical and effective legislation. We will continue to push for its efficient implementation.
By helping to define the rules, Univar is uniquely placed to monitor, advise and manage REACH compliance for our customers.
As the May 2018 deadline approached, Univar Colour was in regular consultation with our suppliers confirming their support and commitment for the products we needed to qualify under REACH. We achieved our goal which was for all of the colour portfolio to be Reach compliant in time for the 31st May 2018 deadline.
