European Chemicals Agency’s REACH Regulation

European Chemicals Agency REACH Regulation
European Chemicals Agency REACH Regulation

The European Union’s REACH regulation was adapted to determine the safety of chemicals and to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals. The REACH regulation also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of chemicals.

The REACH regulations applies to all chemicals including industrial chemicals and substances used in day-to-day lives including chemicals used in cleaning products, paints, clothes, furnitureand electrical appliances. The REACH regulation is overseen by the European Chemicals Agency or ECHA.  Tp comply with the REACH regulations, companies must identify and manage the risks of the chemicals and demonstrate to ECHA how the chemicals can be safely used. ECHA than evaluates the chemical registration dossiers and the chemical testing proposals  to determine whether the chemical constitutes a risk to human health or the environment.

ECHA Evaluation focuses on three different areas:

  • Examination of testing proposals submitted by registrants
  • Compliance check of the dossiers submitted by registrants
  • Substance evaluation

 Contract Laboratory has helped many companies with their REACH Testing including the following projects:

  • Italian cosmetic company needs consumer product safety laboratory for REACH compliance testing and toxicological tests for REACH registration, 1-10 tons of materials

 

  • Company developing new line of towels needs consumer products laboratory for laundering test study: AATCC 96 testing (Dimensional Stability to Commercial Laundry). to show they can withstand frequent high-temp commercial laundry conditions at our customers’ large yoga studios. I need to reach below temperatures:wash = 170F (at least)dry = 190F (at least)

 

  • EPA GLP Toxicology Laboratory needed for GLP Toxicity Study to for REACH dossier

 

  • Toxicology Laboratory needed for REACH OECD polymer testing to OECD TG 118 (1996) method on phenolic syntans, melamine, dicyandiamide, naphthalene, chrome syntan and tanning auxiliaries used for leather industry OECD TG 118 (1996) method is written on ECHA ?Guidance for polymers &monomers? booklet for GPC analysis. We are searching laboratory which have certification for OECD TG 118 test.

 

  • Analytical Chemistry Laboratory needed for chemical analysis to determine composition of butyl reclaimed rubber to be able to assess the registration requirements of the EU REACH Regulation.

 

  • FDA Food Laboratory needed for medium density polypropylene sheets testing to REACH, ROHS, and FDA foodcontact standards

 

  • Asia Toxicology Laboratory enviromental toxicology testing for CLP and REACH classification of hazardous materials to Chemical, Labeling and Packaging (CLP) for EU REACH for hazards to GHS requirements for EU Safety Data Sheets

 

  • Jewelery manufacturer & exporter needs REACH testing on glass. Please include tentative costing that may be incurred in this test and approximate time taken to undergo this test & get the results.

 

  • Men’s dress shoe manufacturer needs laboratory for REACH testing and CPSIA testing. Materials are leather, EVA et TR.

 

  • Detergent Manufacturer needs product safety toxicology laboratory for OECD tests: Skin irritation OECD439 Skin corrosion (human skin model test) OECD431 Eye irritation / corrosion OECD405 or Bovine corneal opacity and permeability OECD 437 Our concern is that we certain mixtures of detergents to eliminate corrosivity, based on the calculation method of the mixture classification according to CLP. Mixtures, which according to the original classification REACH based only irritating, often based eye corrosive, in this case, the packaging symbol for corrosivity. Such labeling can be excluded if tests for eye corrosivity excluded. The test must be performed within the SLP. Then I would like to ask about tests that relate to the physical characteristics? E.g. determine the flash point, etc.
