  • REACH

    REACH is the European Union regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and restriction of Chemicals.

    It came into force on 1st June 2007 and replaces a number of European Directives and Regulations with a single system.It is one of the largest and most ambitious regulatory regimes that European industries have seen.

    REACH will affect many thousands of substances up and down the supply chain and place obligations on suppliers, manufacturers and downstream users to provide information on the substances they supply and use. It will also encourage companies to use innovation to replace hazardous substances with safer less hazardous alternatives.

    Tata Steel have recognised our commitment to REACH and have been working with other European steel companies to create one industry position to comply with the regulation. We met all of our registration obligations in 2010 and 2013 and continue to progress towards the 2018 deadline. We are also active in the other processes of REACH such as Restriction and Authorisation.
